Imagine a City - Elise Hurst

Staff Pick

A mother prompts her children to Imagine a City (Doubleday, $16.99) where impossible feats are everyday sights: friendly lions frequent libraries, children fly with their umbrellas on rainy days, fish soar in the clouds like birds, and butterflies fly from a book’s pages. Elise Hurst creates this fantastical world with grey pencil and spare prose. The picture book’s novel loveliness lies in the space left blank between the short, yet dreamy sentences and the monochromatic illustrations, giving young readers room to fill in the gaps with their own dreams. Ages 4-6.
