Rocksy by Loris Lesynski

RocksyIn Rocksy, written and illustrated by Loris Lesynski, Roxanne is a very clumsy girl that is tired of always falling and hurting herself and wishes she were made of stone so that she wouldn't get hurt anymore, until her wish comes true and she realizes how awful it would be to be made of stone.  The rhyming text is fun to read and the pictures and words give you lots to talk about.

Anna thought this book was funny.  It led to lots of discussion.  We talked about how silly the story was, but yet how funny it was.  We talked about how Rocksy didn't really think through her wish and how sometimes we might wish for something but then really not like it if our wish came true.

Although Loris Lesynski's website appears to not have been updated for a number of years, it is still a good place to learn more about her and her books.  There are also some pages with ideas for activities for Rocksy readers
