Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Get ready for the surreal. The cover alone is intriguing with a man in a bowler hat, but his face is obscured by a floating green apple. Opening this board book, kids will see a steam engine pulling out of a fireplace. The text calls all to come aboard and then asks "where do you think we will go...?" It is these kinds of questions that can be asked about all of these unusual pictures, such as a boat made of waves or a bird that is composed of blue sky and clouds. What is one to make of people walking on clouds or raining down from the sky? The back cover tells us that every image holds a surprise in that this book is as much an introduction to surrealism as it is a first book of dreams. If you want to expose your little ones to art, this book may be a good choice. Other books in the series include Andy Warhol's Colors, Counting with Wayne Thibaud, Matisse Dance for Joy and Jacob Lawrence in the City. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
