Illustrated in full color. What magic can be found in a piece of string? The magic of a million incarnations--when the string is found by an imaginative little girl who spies it on the sidewalk! Slither, slish. It could be the dance of a scaly dragon. Or--push-a-pat--the top of a long great wall. Unique and beautiful illustrations, inspired by Asian brush-stroke paintings, transform the simple thread into fireworks, thunderclouds, and even the moon. At last the girl returns to show her waiting classmates her newfound treasure: a "squiggle of a line"! Lavish illustrations and simple text make this an engaging read-aloud, sure to charm any playful child.
