What's The Thing About

Publisher Summary

One day, the Thing falls from the sky and four strangers stumble across it. They work together to take care of the Thing. But before long a media circus builds up around the creature, and the debate about the Thing spreads far around the world. What is the Thing? Who does it belong to? Is it any use for anything at all? This captivating picture book will be many things to many people: a story about thoughtfulness, an adventure in friendship, and an intriguing and gentle social commentary on the search for meaning in modern life.
