Reviews

I Can Fly by Ruth Krauss, illus. by Mary Blair, first published in 1951, features another solitary child in imaginary play, but the tone here is sillier. A rhyming text boasts that the girl can do anything that a variety of animals can do; for example, as she eats celery: "Crunch crunch crunch/ I'm a goat out to lunch." The artwork contrasts her antics with the animals she imitates in flatly patterned, stylized shapes that owe much to 1950s-era animation. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
