Delightful new picture book tells the lesson-filled tale of a little boy who wants nothing more but to play

Children’s author Doris Borhi paints smiles on young readers’ faces as she releases What Michael Wants. Made available through Xlibris, this vibrantly illustrated picture book follows how one boy learns why playing all day long isn’t that fun.

Michael is an eight-year-old boy who enjoys playing with his toys. He wants nothing more than to play with his toys all day long. As soon as he gets home from school, he immediately heads to his room to play even if his mother would ask him to do his homework first. One afternoon, he falls asleep while playing. He dreams that he is in outer space, where there are more toys than he can play with. Days turn into months, months turn into years, and more and more toys seem to appear, but this does not stop Michael from playing, until something frightens him and Michael realizes that now he wants nothing more than to be back home. What could it be? Readers will find out in the colorful and amusing pages of What Michael Wants.

This book will be featured at the BookExpo America in New York City, NY on May 26-28, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
