Thomas Gibault's wild picture book invites children into a fantastic world filled with unexpected characters. The rich, bright, one-of-a-kind illustrations are laugh-out-loud funny and encourage visual literacy --- there's something different and new to discover with every perusal. And the surprising twist ending will inspire repeat readings as children search for clues sprinkled throughout the story. Based on the vivid imagination of one boy, this is a book that beautifully showcases the wonders of imaginative play and encourages play-based learning. Also, many young children will identify with the boy's antagonistic relationship with his sister.
