About the Book

This is the story of Willoughby, whose new house feels too small and very lonely.

It's also the story of an enchanted lion and spectacular wishes come true: of roller coasters, and fast, fast shoes, and enormous crowds of people.

But most of all, it's the story of one important question: What is the most wonderful thing of all?

This gorgeous picture book is a true original.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Foley scores points for unique visual presentation in this sumptuously produced, two-color book...Brassy layers and a sprinkling of stars imply fantastic wealth, leavened with grayscale pixels; the elegant combination of the two basic colors boosts the visual impact exponentially.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Sure to capture children’s fancy.” - ALA Booklist

“The images in this book stick in the mind’s eye, and may encourage kids to try out different ideas in their pictures.” - Newsday
