Pius Pelosi, a young pack rat, is a born collector who fills a room with his marvelous findings, attracting curious visitors. His very favorite item, a plain gray pebble, is given a place of honor, which baffles everyone. They all ask why he would keep such an ordinary stone. Bowing to public opinion, Pius gets rid of it, but in doing so, he discovers he's lost much more than just the pebble. This philosophical tale about a small creature who has the eye and soul of an artist is brought to life in distinctly droll watercolor illustrations.
