A little girl and her dog friend love to make and unmake things together. One day the girl decides she is going to make the “most magnificent thing.” She hires her dog as her assistant. They make plans and gather an odd assortment of supplies. Frustration soon sets in, and the thing they create is not magnificent at all. However, patience prevails, and all the wrong parts do, in fact, become right. This is a delightful picture book for all those children and adults who like to tinker with odds and ends and do not want to give up. Preschool and up. (Kids Can Press)
