These rocks can really roll! Well, most of them, anyway...
Get ready to meet a new rock group! From zippy, little pebbles to big strong boulders, the rocks get together to play and roll around their favorite hill, only to find that one of their friends, Ricky, can't roll with them. Unlike all of the others, who are all round, Ricky can't roll because he's flat on one side.
Except for poor Ricky, who quietly sat.
You see, Rick couldn't roll, because one side was flat.
His friends didn't get it,
"Come Roll!" they would chant.
So Ricky tried, but replied,
"I'm sorry, I can’t."
Determined not to leave their friend behind, the rocks set out to help Ricky roll around - one way or another. This sweet, imaginative picture book, written in verse, brings a fresh set of characters to life in a story that highlights perseverance and triumph in the face of adversity, and the power of true friendship.
From the best-selling author of Tess, the Tin that Wanted to Rock, The Bear and the Fern and Patrick Picklebottom and the Penny Book comes this fun, funny and heartwarming that is loved by kids, parents and teachers alike.
