I Can Fly

Ruth Krauss, Author, Mary Blair, Illustrator Golden Books $12.95 (48p) ISBN 978-0-307-10548-6
I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss, illus. by Mary Blair, first published in 1951, features another solitary child in imaginary play, but the tone here is sillier. A rhyming text boasts that the girl can do anything that a variety of animals can do; for example, as she eats celery: ""Crunch crunch crunch/ I'm a goat out to lunch."" The artwork contrasts her antics with the animals she imitates in flatly patterned, stylized shapes that owe much to 1950s-era animation.
