Sylvester and the Magic Pebble
Soon after finding a wish-granting pebble, Sylvester, the donkey, encounters a lion. The lion so frightens Sylvester that he wishes he were rock. No one in the search party formed to find Sylvester suspects that the rock on the hill is Sylvester. Will Sylvester ever be a donkey again?! When Sylvester finds a shiny red pebble, he wishes for it to stop raining.
Sylvester and the Magic Pebble is an award-winning children's picture book written and illustrated by William Steig , and published in Sylvester, a donkey from the fictional community of Oatsdale, collects pebbles "of unusual shape and color. Immediately afterward, a lion scares Sylvester, and as a defense he wishes himself into a rock — the only thing he could think of at the moment. Unfortunately, the magic pebble falls off the rock, and Sylvester is unable to revert to his donkey form as the pebble must be in contact with the wish-maker to work. The rest of the story deals with the resulting aftermath: Sylvester's personal attempt to change back into his true self and his parents' search for their only son. The book was also featured on an episode of Between the Lions.
