The list author says: "Is your child a dreamer? Does your child have an unusual way of looking at the world? Pick a book that engages your child and invites him or her to soar off to fantastic places and wacky adventures. Here are a few titles that might do the trick."
"This "marvelous" book contains gorgeous illustrations & well-written dialogue. Your child will want to imagine what hats they & all their acquaintances would wear in Millie's world when they finish the book. For ages 3-7."
"This book is a great conversation starter. Your children will look at the everyday objects in a different light, asking, "Is it a house, or does it live in a house?" The rhythm of the language makes it a pleasure to read as well as to listen to. For ages 2-6."
"Jenny is a nasty-tempered, gluttonous, self-centered dog. However, her wacked-out voyage out into the "world" teaches her life lessons. There are many layers to this book, some of which I didn't understand until adulthood...but I loved it's imaginative style as a child just the same. Readers will speculate about what the end actually means. For ages 5 and up."
"From a very creative--& very strange--writer, a wonderful book for ages 5 to 10. When a boy has dental work done, he doesn't realize that it can attract radio waves...& extraterrestrials! A very wacky book, & a particular favorite with boys."
"This book captured my imagination when I read it as a child not only because of its creativity, but because of the wonderful characters & the plausible explanation of the mechanism of time/space travel. Ages 10 & up."
