Comments for Imagine a Day

Imagine a Day: 09/17/12

 cover art (Thomsonk goes to Powells)Imagine a Day is another collaboration between author Sarah L. Thomson and Canadian painter, Rob Gonsalves. This book is themed around day time adventures, all of which have a surreal twist to them.

The book asks the reader to imagine days when mirrors become lakes and moats are used to invite guests over instead of keeping them out. There is a fast approaching train being held up by a bridge of circus acrobats. Cities become blocks and sky scrapers are like the pickets in a fence around a yard.

My children and I read the book three times together. Then they each took turns with the book to examine the paintings and to read it with their grandparents.

The Imagine A series is so popular with them I am considering finding copies to add to our personal library.

Five stars
