Overview

When Penny spots a marble in Mrs. Goodwin's front yard,
she picks it up,
puts it in her pocket,
and takes it home.
It's a beautiful marble—it's big, shiny, blue,
smooth, and fast,
and Penny loves it.
But does the marble really belong to Penny?

What do you think will happen?

How can you not love kevin henkes?? this is just the sweetest book about honesty and integrity written for a 3-6 year old. He always has a way with words so you can really feel for the character and fall in love. Not even to mention his amazing illustrations! I wish my whole house was decorated in his drawing!
