I love this story but I feel it is a little oddish for storytime. A pack rat gives away his wonderful collection, then he feels sad, so he starts collecting again. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374363439, Hardcover)

Pius Pelosi, a young pack rat, is a born collector who fills a
room with his marvelous findings, attracting curious visitors.
His very favorite item, a plain gray pebble, is given a place of
honor, which baffles everyone. They all ask why he would keep
such an ordinary stone. Bowing to public opinion, Pius gets rid
of it, but in doing so, he discovers he’s lost much more than just
the pebble.

This philosophical tale about a small creature who has the eye
and soul of an artist is brought to life in distinctly droll
watercolor illustrations.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:03:27 -0400)

Pius Pelosi has a Room of Wonders, where people come from miles around to see his treasures, but when the visitors convince him to throw out the very first item he ever collected, Pius no longer gets pleasure from his collection.
