Description

This is the story of Willoughby, whose new house feels too small and very lonely.

It's also the story of an enchanted lion and spectacular wishes come true: of roller coasters, and fast, fast shoes, and enormous crowds of people.

But most of all, it's the story of one important question: What is the most wonderful thing of all?

This gorgeous picture book is a true original.

Review quote

"Sure to capture children's fancy."--ALA Booklist "The images in this book stick in the mind's eye, and may encourage kids to try out different ideas in their pictures."--Newsday "Foley scores points for unique visual presentation in this sumptuously produced, two-color book...Brassy layers and a sprinkling of stars imply fantastic wealth, leavened with grayscale pixels; the elegant combination of the two basic colors boosts the visual impact exponentially."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
