Suggested Ages: 4 – 8
In Henkes’ irresistible picture book, five toyland friends, all sitting in a child’s windowsill – are waiting for something amazing to happen. An owl, a puppy, a bear, a rabbit and a pig, each has his own ideas about what the anticipated event might be. The frustration of waiting is something every child understands, but in this delightful tale, it is the child who gets to pull the strings. It is a timeless story filled with friendship, imaginative play and surprise. Henkes is a master picture book creator and a Caldecott Medalist.
