September 2012 Book of the Month. A wonderful array of choices is on offer as this best-selling author and illustrator pair offer children the chance to imagine themselves as a lot of very different things. Try being so big that you fill a swimming pool or so small that you can have to bath in a teacup. Try choosing a different time to live in, or a different place such as a magical world, or being an animal. All children will love the array of pictures that offer a rich variety of lives.

Synopsis

Just Imagine by Pippa Goodhart

Just imagine what it would be like to be as small as a mouse; or as big as a house. Imagine exploring the depths of the ocean, travelling into the past or the future - or something even stranger...This wonderfully inventive and interactive book allows a child to tell their own story, combining new elements each time. And with intricately detailed illustrations for parent and child to pore over together, this really is a book to share time and time again.
