Caramel gelato.
Scoring super-high on a Scrabble turn.
Babies burping.

With its chunky shape, striking black-and-white cover, and 100 whimsical illustrations by Pierre Le-Tan, the new 14,000 Things is an irresistible catalog of good thoughts completely updated to reflect today's world-and an uplifting gift for people of all moods and all ages.
