With trademark illustrations, Henkes both shows and tells about Penny (a mouse) finding - and TAKING -  a beautiful marble from a neighbor's yard. The marble is SO beautiful, but Penny struggles with her conscience. Through simple, readable text and expressive illustrations, Penny's moral conflict is clearly shown. Though the resolution seems simple, readers (and Penny) feel that the story ends justly and happily.
