Description
Along with Ounce, Dice, Trice, a wordbook illustrated by Ben Shahn, Scottish-born poet and translator Alastair Reid penned this remarkable 1960 foray into children's inner lives—a big fat "what if" kind of a book for readers 5 to 9 (and puckish personalities of all ages) that considers mischievous and even naughty thoughts as well as nice ones. Some of the supposings are simple ("Supposing I had fur instead of skin..." and "Supposing I could meet some of my ancestors..."), while others are not only more involved ("Supposing I told a fussy woman on the train that I was an orphan and had no home and when I got off the train and went over to where our house was, there was nothing but trees and nobody had ever heard of me..."), they also suggest the complex interactions between a child's world and his imagination. Designer Bob Gill interprets Reid's mental explorations in hilariously literal images, drawn as ink cartoons that bristle with nervous energy in this fine New York Review Children's Collection edition.
