Description

In this delightful story, a lost book transforms into whatever the finder needs it to be. An imaginative and original tale with all the elements of the best and most enduring children's book classics!

Deep in the woods, a rabbit finds a mysterious object. "What is this?" he asks. "It looks like a wonderful house for me." And he wriggles inside for a nap. Later he hops away and a bear lumbers by.
"What is this?" the bear asks. "It looks like a wonderful hat for me." And he puts it on his head. One by one different animals find the object and transform it into whatever they need it to be.
But it's not until the little boy comes along and knows exactly what it is. It's a wonderful book! And all the animals gather around to share the truly wonderful story that's inside.
