When the food runs out, Lila wishes upon a falling star. Next day she receives a bag of flour. She makes enough bread for a week, then wishes again. Thus, she survives the winter.

An outing as ordinary as a visit to the zoo is an imaginative adventure for grandfather and grandchild in this whimsical picture book. The playful, slightly offbeat rhyme complements Grandpa’s quirky questions. Do a zebra’s stripes go up or down? Do polar bears eat frozen treats to cool off in the summer? What kind of bag would a traveling kangaroo carry?
