Pres-Grade 2—Eva receives a magic box for her birthday, and with it she creates a pet polar bear called Monty, rabbits from hats, and a party complete with delicious food and a band of animal musicians. When they all dance their socks off, Eva snaps her fingers and makes everything vanish—except Monty. This fanciful tale, though slight, celebrates the power of imagination. The chunky lines of the illustrations call to mind classic picture books of the 1950s, and the color palette expands from simple black, white, and red to an explosion of bright colors as Eva's imagination and magic take flight.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD
