EMPATHY; PERSPECTIVE-TAKING --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From Booklist

For the first half of Ludwig’s picture book, a lonesome-looking boy appears rendered in gray and white. Even the teacher has no time for “invisible” Brian, as she is busy dealing with the noisy children in her class. Brian, with his big glasses and toothy smile, gets his hopes dashed when he isn’t picked for the kickball team. He finds solace in his drawings, where fire-breathing dragons scale tall buildings and superheroes have the power to make friends. When new student Justin arrives, Brian befriends him when the others don’t, and they become buddies and even add a third boy to become a trio. Now visible in glorious color, Brian and his new friends present a project to their newly appreciative classmates. The joyful last pages show Brian with the children playing happily in real and imaginary activities. Brian’s childlike drawings, done in ink and collage, are spot-on in representing the way children depict their imaginary world and their very real feelings. “Questions for Discussion” in the back matter provide guidelines for teachers and parents. Preschool-Grade 2. --Lolly Gepson --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
