Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Two Sesame Street songs take book form for the first time. "Here, in the middle of imagination, right in the middle of my head.../ I close my eyes and my home isn't home.../ and my bed isn't really my bed." Musical director Joe Raposo created Imagination Song 25 years ago; now Laurent Linn's dreamlike depictions of the familiar characters show them acting out their fantasies Miss Piggy morphs into a mermaid, Cookie Monster holds court and Grover floats above the Earth's atmosphere on the tail of a kite. I Don't Want to Live on the Moon by the late Jeff Moss (who also wrote "Rubber Duckie") is set against Dagmar Fehlau's intergalactic illustrations.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Two small picture books, each featuring the lyrics to a Sesame Street song (the scores are not included). Moon conveys Ernie's competing desire for adventure and the need for stability, with stability winning out: "Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above,/soon I'd miss all the places and people I love." The text curves across brightly colored pages but, in this format, both the awkward, repetitive lyrics and the illustrations are saccharine. Fehlau's busy pictures, littered with stars and multicolored dots, are pretty but uninspired and do little to bring the story-song to life. Raposo's Imagination Song in the hands of illustrator Linn fares somewhat better for his naive art is better suited to the childlike lyrics. Whimsical details and varied perspectives add a dreamlike quality. As his bed becomes a sailing ship, Ernie imagines wonderful possibilities for his pals and himself. Although these books most likely will not disappoint fans, they are strictly marginal purchases.

Format: Library Binding
My 20 month old loves this and "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon". From the moment I got them they were his two new favorites. I think the reviewer was mistaken in terms of the illustration. They are beautifully done and my Son can almost recite the book by heart by looking at the pictures. Maybe the reviewer doesn't have children to test with... I gave this book a 4 and Moon a 5 according to my son's preference. I wish there were more of these books on the market.

This is a very entertaining books. I talks about all the things you could do and all the places you could go in your imagination. It is fun, and the pictures do really capture the kids' eye. I personally recommend this book together with "I don't want to live in the moon", by Jeff Moss.
