If I Could be Anything

Kevin McNamee has done it again!
After enjoying the book I reviewed in my last post I read another by the same talented author. If I Could be Anything takes us into a boy's vivid imagination while he's picturing multiple possibilities, all of which sound like fun. What kid wouldn't want to bounce like a kangaroo or soar like an eagle? McNamee's catchy rhymes will carry children along, especially if the book is read aloud to them.
But at last the boy appreciates being himself, surrounded by those who love him. With such a comforting ending the book would make a wonderful bedtime story.
Marina Movshina did a good job of capturing the imaginary feel of the book in her illustrations, too.

Not only does GAP have some very talented authors, but the reviewers are great too! You did a great job reviewing Kevin's books, Jan and he did a wonderful job writing them. As for all of us at GAP, may 2010 be a banner year and may all our books sell millions!

Thanks to everyone for the comments. Especially Nicole, who seems to be appearing in triplicate.

Jan,
That's because her book is in three different languages! Isn't that right, Nicole! **grin**
