Although Roger Bradfield wrote this charming little book almost fifty years ago, it reads as though it was penned (and illustrated) just yesterday. It celebrates the spark of magic we call "imagination" that lives within each child. The child in this book feels perfectly at ease talking and dreaming with his favorite rock. Have you ever chatted with an inanimate object? If not, you've missed out on some interesting conversation and children learn that friends like you just the way you are.
