Description

Johnny lives in a town where everyone owns a shiny green stone. He has one, too, until his mean-spirited behavior makes him lose it. His family and the whole town help him search, but to find it, he alone must discover the “bright green sun in his heart.” “A symbolic and sensitive tale about a young boy who discovers that happiness and fulfillment can come from within.”--American Bookseller
