The humorous adventures of an irresistible little rock who finds herself in constantly changing circumstances, Petra is a picture book that celebrates the power of perspective and believing in yourself.

Petra is a little rock who believes she is a mighty mountain . . . until a dog fetches her for its owner, and she is tossed into a bird's nest. A mountain? No, Petra is now an egg! An egg of the world in a world of possibility. Until she's flung into a pond, and becomes an amazing island . . . and, eventually, a little girl's pet rock. What will she be tomorrow? Who knows? But she's a rock, and this is how she rolls!

"Meet Petra, a smooth grey oval of possibility… a pleasantly intelligent book." --STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

"[S]imple, smooth, and stylish… Change may be the only constant in Petra’s peripatetic existence, but her bubbly optimism is as solid as a Gibraltar." --STARRED REVIEW, Publisher's Weekly

"You've never seen a cuter rock... Petra's unmitigated confidence in an unpredictable world make(s) it a keeper." -- STARRED REVIEW, Booklist
