Sylvester the donkey collects rocks of all shapes and sizes. One day, after finding a rock to add to his collection, he meets a lion on his way. In a panicked moment, Sylvester wishes he could turn into a rock, which he promptly does. Sylvester lives on a hillside in the hopes that someday, someone will find the magic pebble and help him return to his normal state. The imaginativeness of the story is engaging and exciting, with Caldecott-winning illustrations.
