Description
When you're a kid, there are lots of things you're not supposed to do. But what if you didn't really do any of those things, what if you just imagined them? Then it wouldn't matter if your supposings were silly, impossible, or even a little naughty--because they're all just in your head. Alastair Reid's book is a monument to the liberating power of unfettered thought. Here he reunites with a frequent collaborator, the famed illustrator and designer Bob Gill, to muse on the possibilities:
Supposing I read a book about how to change into animals and said a spell and changed myself into a cat and when I climbed on the book to change myself back I found I couldn't read. . .
Supposing I had a twin brother but we never told anyone and only went to school half the time each. . .
Supposing a very beautiful lady fell in love with me and wanted me to marry her but I just yawned and said Maybe . . .
