The humorous adventures of an irresistible little rock who finds herself in constantly changing circumstances, Petra is a picture book that celebrates the power of perspective and believing in yourself.

Petra is a little rock who believes she is a mighty mountain . . . until a dog fetches her for its owner, and she is tossed into a bird's nest. A mountain? No, Petra is now an egg! An egg of the world in a world of possibility. Until she's flung into a pond, and becomes an amazing island . . . and, eventually, a little girl's pet rock. What will she be tomorrow? Who knows? But she's a rock, and this is how she rolls!

I love Petra! Her motto: "I'm a rock, and this is how I roll." She is a garden rock who imagines all the things she could be: a magnificent mountain, a dog's ball, an island. The possibilities are endless! A fabulous picture book about perspective and imagination.

Petra is a tiny pebble who thinks she is a great big island. She is spunky and precious and imaginative, and I love her so much.

If optimism and imagination are your thing, then Petra is the rock for you! Utterly adorable and quirkily cute. I dare you to read this book and not smile. Petra's optimism is paired with beautiful illustrations makes this one of my favorite new picture books this year!
