How could a new idea change the world? This picture book tells the story of a kid with a new idea. At first the idea is small, and he tries to ignore it. However, it continues to grow, and soon he can’t imagine his life without it. When he shares the idea with people, some think it’s silly and it can’t be done. Nevertheless, he continues to nurture his idea. Then one day, the idea metamorphizes before his eyes and changes the world. The world that was once gray and ordinary is now full of color and life.

This wonderful story encourages children to dream big. It gives them a concrete image of what an abstract concept like a new idea can do if it gets big enough. In the beginning of the book the idea is a little round egg with a paper crown. It’s the only object in color in the pictures.
