When a boy is born, his parents are visited by a wise man who tells them not to name their son. The wise man will give the boy a name when he is older. This is the story of how the boy seeks and eventually finds his own name and is able to discard an old dream for a new and wonderful one.

Among the many insights that this story introduces to children is the idea that it takes patience and resolve to achieve one’s goals in life.

Beautiful watercolor illustrations by Mona Caron embellish this unusual story.
