Book Description

4 Mar 1999 A Tom Maschler book
Every child loves to imagine impossible situations that just might happen--and in "What If?," they do! What if you woke up in the morning, and your parents weren't there, and the cat cooked breakfast? Would you have to eat cat food? And you met a dragon on the way to school, and you had a battle? And at school you found acrobats instead of teachers? Joanna Walsh invents a day to suit the wildest fantasies of any child, and her dazzling, color-saturated crayon-and-collage illustrations are an absolute feast for young eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really imaginative and fun! 8 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This book is hard to find - I'm not sure if it's out of print - but it's such fun you should get a copy while you can! My children love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong book, but still good 15 April 2014
By Terpsichore - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Okay, before anyone gets me wrong here, when I say "wrong book", I do NOT mean the seller sent the wrong book. They sent the right book, but it turned out to not be the book I was looking for. I didn't really know how else to put it.
We don't know the name of the book we're looking for, just that it contains a children's rhyme that my husband remembers from his childhood:
"If ice was hot and fire was not, would eskimoes wear bikinis?" and "If grandmas could fly across the sky, would grandpas know where to find them?"

We've been searching high and low for this book for when we have grandkids. Some I've been able to preview, enabling me to determine "yay or nay" without buying. Some, such as this one, didn't have previews available, so I just purchased them instead.

BUT the books that weren't matches aren't going to waste. They are going to be donated to my kids' old elementary school, where I used to be a teaching assistant, for their library. This way kids can still enjoy them! :)
