Sylvester and the Magic Pebble

This is a book about a donkey that finds a magic rock. He makes a mistake and turns himself into a rock.

I like this book because it has magic in it. My favorite part of the book is when Sylvester finds the magic pebble and wishes the rain would stop and it does! I like that his wishes can come true. I would like to find a magic pebble but I wouldn't turn into a rock! I think Sylvester learns that he should think about things before he makes a wish.

I would tell my friends to read this book if they like books with magic. I would tell them it is a book about wishes that can come true.
