K-Gr 2-Imagination runs rampant in this story that describes a child's Saturday morning. Faced with a list of chores to complete before she can play, June proceeds to lighten her tasks by imagining a huge bird teaching her to fly to the mailbox, a genial wind blowing her and the leaves across the steps of her house and into a field, and monsters cleaning under her bed. When she and her dog finish their work, they face the front door ready to begin the day. Colorful, humorous cartoon illustrations with plenty to look at fill the pages, contrasting reality with June's fantasies in a style a little reminiscent of William Joyce's. Although not an essential purchase, the book should find many small adherents.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
