PreS—Elephant siblings Maggie and Wendel let their imaginations go wild as they play together. From rescuing a friend from a burning building to buying a pet dragon at the pet store, these siblings learn to play together. Spare text allows readers to be part of the story as the digital charcoal illustrations go from white background with minimal colors to black backgrounds with color illustrations as Maggie and Wendel's imaginations soar.
VERDICT A clever story that shows that with a little imagination it's easy to have fun.
