Just Imagine

Pippa Goodhart, illus. by Nick Sharratt. Kane Miller, $12.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-61067-343-3
In a companion to You Choose, the question “Can you imagine being big?” kicks off a succession of what-if scenarios featuring a redheaded girl and a bespectacled boy exploring and transforming themselves amid pages crowded with animals, magical creatures, wild machinery, and more. “Imagine being made differently—not really human at all,” Goodhart suggests as Sharratt pictures the boy as a centaur and a living candle, while the girl morphs into a ghost and a balloon. Other spreads invite readers to imagine traveling through time, inventing the “best machine,” and living underground or underwater. Sharrat’s signature brand of simple, bright cartooning and Goodhart’s reader-directed prompts and tidbits of information offer diversions aplenty. Ages 3–7. (Sept.)
