Imagination running wild, 18 Jan. 2005
This is a book I have never tired of reading to my children. I first saw it as a child myself and loved it, then I rediscovered it as a parent. Beautifully illustrated with sparse, subtle, rhythmically dramatic prose, this book is a pleasure to read out loud as I have done for all my children over the last 9 years. My three year old still loves it but has to 'borrow' it from her 6 year old brother.
