a book that adults can re-read without going mad
The lush illustrations by talented painter Edward Hemingway open the door to that surreal midnight space we all know; blurred shapes, sounds and perceptions, and footholds on reality are hard to find. Just when you think you are going under, Hemingway bumps you into a goofy, perky lightness you didn't see coming. Your kids will think of hero Billy as one of their nonimaginary friends, and you will enjoy the subtle "blue period" illustrations of Hemingway's first kids' book. Look for "Bad Apple" his next bed time story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
