Imagine a Day (Sarah L. Thomson)

Imagine a Day
Sarah L. Thompson
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: A treehouse large as a manor... a library of doorways to other worlds... The illusionary paintings of Rob Gonsalves feature in a second book of short verse.

REVIEW: Much like Imagine a Night (reviewed on my website here), the paintings boggle the eye and inspire the heart. The verses by Thomson, while fun, are largely incidental. Once in a while, Gonsalves's people appear distorted, but otherwise it's yet another feast for the imagination.
