"When Sophy awakes one morning to discover that she can fly, nobody much cares except her Auntie Pearl, who exclaims: 'Well, imagine that! I always knew you took after me. We must go for an outing.' And so they do, floating above a telephone-company cherry picker and embracing the zoo's giraffe. The lightness of Ms. Titherington's joyful pictures wafts the reader right along." New York Times.
With her usual simple text and soft-textured colored-pencil illustrations, Titherington tells a story of imagination and friendship. Sophy discovers she can fly. Her mother and father arent interested, but Great-aunt Pearl next door says she can fly, too. Together, the small child and the old lady take off.... Titheringtons gentle, realistic art makes the ordinary so amazing that we laugh at the playful perspectives and fly with the story. ALA Booklist.
The simple, charming text, printed with large clarity in an elegant typeface, is formally arranged opposite full-page, framed colored-pencil illustrations. Seen from various perspectives, the expertly rendered, realistic indoor and outdoor scenes of everyday life are made magical with floods of light and the exuberance of the pair as they prance gleefully across the sky.... Children will relish this message. School Library Journal.
