From the author of A Sick Day for Amos McGee comes a completely original story about where ideas come from and just how powerful they can be.

As an author and his dog Wednesday walk through their neighborhood, they look at sunflowers, say Hi to Frank, a turtle, who makes quick for the water and disappears, and watch a train rumble by as they walk uphill to a big purple house that belongs to their friend Barbara. Wednesday chases squirrels while the two friends discuss fishing and war and how back before the neighborhood was there enormous woolly mammoths roamed where houses now sit.

Thoughts open up to other thoughts, and ideas are born and carried forward, often transforming into other ideas until he finds that ideas really are all around, you just have to know what to do with them.
