If...is a book of surreal possibilities. It can be explored in many different ways. you can use a single illustration or combine several to create your own stories. For example, "If frogs ate rainbows.".., what would their craoks sound like and what would they say? Or "If cats could fly...and "If mice were hair.".., what then? In contrast, you can perceive each painting as a complete story in itself. I hope this book triggers a smile (either private or shared ) and will help you experience the real wonders surrounding us all: water can become solid; bees do dance; and birds can truly soar.
"Can you imagine what would happen if cats could fly of if leaves on trees were actually fish? What would happen if ants could count or spiders could read braille? These premises and illustrations serve as writing prompts as children consider what the world would be like in each case."--Bookalogues
