Billy's Bucket

A Picture Book by

A fantastical birthday story reminds us never to underestimate the power of an empty bucket - or a child's imagination!

Billy's birthday is coming, and there's only one thing he wants. It's not a computer game, or new sneakers, or a shiny new bike - it's a bucket, and just one special bucket will do. Billy knows it when he sees it, and sure enough, when he fills it with water, he discovers a magnificent world of sea creatures inside! "You must never ever borrow my bucket," Billy warns his mom and dad. But do they listen? Children will cheer - and parents take heed - at this magical tale of a very determined boy who knows what he wants and has the faith and creativity to get it.
