A stone sat still with the water, grass, and dirt and it was as it was where it was in the world.

To some creatures it's a pebble, to others a peak, to some a smell. Each animal that encounters the stone knows it to be something unique, but the stone itself is a constant in an ever changing world. In this brilliant companion to the Caldecott Honor-winning They All Saw a Cat, Brendan Wenzel tells a moving story about how different perspectives and the passage of time can turn a seemingly ordinary stone into a site of infinite possibility.
