Something Extraordinary


Written and Illustrated by: Ben Clanton
Number of Pages: 32
Age Range: 4+
Rating: 4.5/5

In light of the events of the last few weeks the world is in desperate need of a little hope and a change in perspective.

Enter Ben Clanton’s simple story of a boy wishing that something, anything would happen to make life a little more interesting. If only he could fly, or breathe underwater. Wouldn’t it be great if his drawings could come to life or that he could talk to animals? But in the midst of all his grandiose wishings and dreamings he stumbles on something extraordinarily real right in front of him.

This is a great reminder that while we’d often like to change things in our lives or get caught up wishing for more that this world is actually a pretty amazing place if we just remember to look!

Check it out! (And Clanton’s other books are a little more on the silly side but also highly recommended!)
