PreS-Gr 2-After reading a story about a brave knight, a brother and sister build a castle in the living room. Cassie wants to be the good knight, but Trevor is unwilling to be the damsel. He finally agrees to be a fierce dragon, but the two argue again when he refuses to be slain. When the baby wakes up from her nap, she joins in the fun, along with the family dog. After a feast prepared by the queen (their mother), the children clean up and Cassie settles down to read another book. The last page shows her dressed as a pirate and ready for action. The vibrant, digital-collage artwork captures the fun of dressing up and playacting. In most illustrations, the children are seen playing in their living room, with the block castle in the background. However, in a few pictures, they appear to be in a real castle, and their mother is always shown wearing a crown and stately robes, which might confuse some readers. Still, this is an appealing look at the resourcefulness of children and the relationship between siblings.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
