Picture Book Review: Imagine That!

Imagine That! by Tom Burlison
Imagine That!
by Tom Burlison,  Sara Sánchez (Illustrator)

5 out of 5 stars

Every day Elliot and Ruby walk to school together. Ruby is very imaginative and sees adventure everywhere, but Elliot is more practical and scoffs at Ruby’s silly games. But gradually Elliot begins to get interested in Ruby’s flights of fancy, and finally joins in her imagination adventures.

Ruby thinks that rain puddles are really magic portal puddles that will whisk you away to a pirate ship. She thinks that a rock could be the last remnant of a crashed alien spaceship. A newspaper is really a treasure map, and a broken branch is a witch’s broom. Anything is possible when you use your imagination!

I LOVED this book so much! So cute and funny! Ruby is so spunky and sweet, and Elliot is adorable as he tries to hide his interest in Ruby’s games. I was enchanted with all the many imaginative things that the children discover.
The illustrations are so cute! I fell in love with the art style and the hilarious expressions on the characters’ faces. The colorful cartoon style is perfect for this story, and all the imagination adventures are beautifully illustrated too. The art really shows the energy and action of each scene in a way that draws the reader into the story.

I can’t even handle how adorable this book is! I was always a very imaginative child, so of course, I fell in love with everything about this story!
