What If…?

Anthony Browne. Candlewick.

PreS-Gr 2–On his way to a birthday party, a boy spins wilder and wilder tales about what the night has in store, while his more practical mother soothes his fears. Browne’s wonderfully surreal gouache and crayon illustrations bring the boy’s imaginings to life in this pitch-perfect, reassuring exploration of childhood—and adult—anxieties.
