9781550377507: Rocksy

Roxanne always gets scraped and bruised when she plays ... until she wishes out loud that she were made of stone! From the Magic Wood comes Ka-PLICKety, zickety zock,” and the Spirit of the Forest turns her into rock. At first she relishes her newfound freedom to jump and skip. But as her bicycle tires go flat beneath her heavy frame and pebble tears fall from her stony eyes, Rocksy regrets her careless wish. The Spirit reverses the trick and comes up with a brilliant new plan, turning herself into the Playground Coach! Fancy footwork, nifty flips, leaping and hopping and instant stopping. The Playground Coach shows all the kids how to play without ever hurting at all.

About the Author:

Loris Lesynski is an author, illustrator, poet, and graphic designer. Rocksy is her fifth rhyming picture book, following the success of Boy Soup (1996), Ogre Fun (1997), Catmagic (1998), and Night School (2001). She has also written and illustrated two collections of rollicking, rhyming poetry, Dirty Dog Boogie (1999, re-issued in full color 2002) and Nothing Beats a Pizza (2001). Loris is a popular and frequent speaker on the reading conference circuit, and makes many appearances at schools and libraries across North America. She lives in Toronto.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-Clumsy Roxanne wishes she could be tough as stone, so that she won't keep hurting herself when she falls, trips, or stumbles. The wish literally comes true and does minimize her injuries but seriously impairs her sense of taste, touch, and sight. She can still see and hear, but talking is hard with a stone tongue, and her friends don't fancy a petrified playmate. Rocksy breaks her bike, smashes her swing, and cries pebble tears before returning to the Magic Wood to get her wish adjusted. The kind spirit agrees to restore the child to her former self and coaches her in balance and "fancy footwork." Message overwhelms story and cartoon art in this rhyming text that raises more questions than it answers. Fans of Lesynski's other work might enjoy this slick cautionary tale. Others may feel that King Midas did it better.
