This is a wonderful winding tale told in rhyme to an array of fantastically colourful illustrations. The vivid journey conjured up by the children in the story sees them joining a pirate crew on board ship, racing through the jungle and meeting Martians! This book proves you really can go anywhere if you imagine hard enough - perfect reading for a summer day!
Two children - one black, one white use their creative imaginations to transform their everyday surroundings into a series of much more exciting scenarios. A dustbin, a kitchen chair and a tree provide the raw materials for journeys in a racing yacht, a steam train and a space rocket all accompanied by their trusty dog. Like most children, they know the difference between fantasy and reality. They relish their imaginary excursions, but they also know how to value the reality of their friendship for one another.
