Here’s a tale about being careful what you wish for. This is the story of Roxanne, a lovely child who was just a bit uncoordinated, or as the playful rhyming story puts it:
One day when they are playing by the Magic Wood, Roxanne gets a brain storm and wishes that she were made of stone. As she eventually learns, it would have been better to have wished for a sense of balance. Being Rocksy is fun for a while but it does get old rather quickly, especially when it turns out to be a progressive change and she becomes more and more stony.
She gets rescued with the help of her friends and finally figures out what she should have wished for.
It’s a nice little story with a bouncy rhyme and rhythm and illustrations add to the fun.
