This is a unique and best-selling story by Kobi Yamada about one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. It will inspire readers to welcome ideas that seem too big, too odd or too difficult, to give them space to grow and see what happens next. It's a story for anyone, at any age, who's ever had a different, daring, or even a little wild idea.

What Do You Do with an Idea? is about a boy who has a peculiar idea: an egg with a golden crown and legs. The story is beautifully illustrated by Mae Besom with images starting out small and in black and white. In the beginning, the boy has no idea what to do with this idea, but it keeps hanging around. As the boy becomes more comfortable with his idea, he tentatively starts to share it with others. The illustrations follow suit and expand into more largess and vibrant color. He is laughed at, but he eventually grows to love his idea. It makes him feel alive and see life differently. The idea changes the world.

Sounds oddly beautiful, doesn't it?
