The most magnificent thing


A girl has a wonderful idea: she is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing! But making her magnificent thing is not that easy, and the girl tries and fails, repeatedly. And she gets really, really mad and quits. But her dog convinces her to take a walk, relax and come back to her project with renewed enthusiasm…


The short story of a little girl and her dog assistant as she sets out to make the most magnificent thing in the world is a charming book that offers a good example of the rewards of perseverance and creativity. The girl’s frustration and anger are vividly depicted in the detailed illustrations, and the story provides an opportunity for dealing genuinely with these feelings, while at the same time reassuring children that it’s okay to make mistakes.
