Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two Sesame Street songs take book form for the first time. "Here, in the middle of imagination, right in the middle of my head.../ I close my eyes and my home isn't home.../ and my bed isn't really my bed." Musical director Joe Raposo created Imagination Song 25 years ago; now Laurent Linn's dreamlike depictions of the familiar characters show them acting out their fantasies Miss Piggy morphs into a mermaid, Cookie Monster holds court and Grover floats above the Earth's atmosphere on the tail of a kite. I Don't Want to Live on the Moon by the late Jeff Moss (who also wrote "Rubber Duckie") is set against Dagmar Fehlau's intergalactic illustrations. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Two small picture books, each featuring the lyrics to a Sesame Street song (the scores are not included). Moon conveys Ernie's competing desire for adventure and the need for stability, with stability winning out: "Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above,/soon I'd miss all the places and people I love." The text curves across brightly colored pages but, in this format, both the awkward, repetitive lyrics and the illustrations are saccharine. Fehlau's busy pictures, littered with stars and multicolored dots, are pretty but uninspired and do little to bring the story-song to life. Raposo's Imagination Song in the hands of illustrator Linn fares somewhat better for his naive art is better suited to the childlike lyrics. Whimsical details and varied perspectives add a dreamlike quality. As his bed becomes a sailing ship, Ernie imagines wonderful possibilities for his pals and himself. Although these books most likely will not disappoint fans, they are strictly marginal purchases.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
