Early Book Review: Petra by Marianna Coppo

Petra is a picture book by Marianna Coppo which is currently scheduled for release on February 6 2018. Petra is a little rock who believes she is a mighty mountain, until a dog fetches her for its owner, and she is tossed into a bird's nest. A mountain? No, Petra is now an egg! An egg of the world in a world of possibility. Until she's flung into a pond, and becomes an amazing island and, eventually, a little girl's pet rock. What will she be tomorrow? Who knows? But she's a rock, and this is how she rolls!
Petra is a cute picturebook about a rock with grand ideas about herself. She thinks highly of herself, and even when she is proven wrong by circumstance she continues to adjust and adapt, making the best of every situation. This is a great reminder for kids and adults alike, that even if thing do not go the way you want or your self perception changes there is still good and possibilities ahead. I loved Petra's good nature, and thought the illustrations were fun and charming. I enjoyed the picturebook greatly, and think it will be a favorite for many.
