Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—At first glance, this story appears to celebrate the power of imagination. A boy wishes for powers to fly, breathe underwater, move things with his mind, or talk to animals. He wishes for unusual pets and footsteps that make funny sounds. All these wishes are illustrated in muted shades. Even the rain "in seven different colors" falls as pastel drops. Although the child's bushy tail and fangs evoke Max and the robust wild things in his imaginary journey, Clanton's protagonist ultimately discovers that something truly extraordinary can be found in the singing birds, blooming flowers, and trees around him. While still quite muted, the colors of these outdoor scenes are brighter than the pages devoted to imagination. VERDICT Perhaps Clanton wants to foster appreciation of everyday wonders found in nature, but the story is confusing and unsatisfying.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University Library, Mankato

Review

"[S]cenes full of gentle humor and inventive play convey respect and affection for the audience. The slowly dawning message will elicit excitement about spring, wishing, and the ability to decode a narrative." ― Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Clanton reveals the charm of recognizing the miraculous in the everyday...Wishes and imagination have power, he suggests, but they pale beside the experiences that await in the real world." ―
Publishers Weekly
