"[A] delightful look at the importance of compromise among friends." -- Kirkus

Ideal for all families who have ever heard (or said!) the words "Why can't you both JUST GET ALONG?!", here is the story of two young children with VERY different ideas of what they want to play. What starts with an innocent question ("What do you want to play?") soon veers hilariously toward chaos, as two children engage in the age-old struggle of princesses, ponies, and ballet vs. dinosaurs, dragons, and race cars. Which child will win? Or will both find a way to play nicely together?
 
In a humorous mock-epic battle staged with crayon illustrations of each child's increasingly steadfast and elaborate ideas of what they want to play, Richard Torrey taps into the charged and volatile emotions of childhood, which every parent and child will recognize with a smile. It's a lighthearted and funny way to reflect on the ideas of sharing, cooperation, patience, and generosity.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.

Due to many publishers not providing a Canadian list price the Canadian list price shown is an estimation based upon the US list price multiplied by the current exchange rate.
