A journey into the cosmos contained in books and the adventures they provide for readers…Farley’s illustrations are endearing and captivating, bringing newly imagined worlds to life through colorful illustrations. A most striking spread shows the night sky, with both known and new constellations filling the page. The trope of opening a book that reveals ideas, excitement, and new experiences within has been explored before, but Wolf’s interpretation feels refreshed by both catchy rhymes and a cast of characters diverse in race, gender, age, and ability. A sweet reminder of the worlds held within books and our power to play in them.

In this snappy addition to the shelf of book-extolling books, Wolf (The Snow Fell Three Graves Deep) supplies a string of examples showing how books can teach and enlighten…Wolf’s playful tone keeps the loosely associated episodes powering forward. Sturdy, stubby-nosed characters by Farley, meanwhile, beguile, and fantasy landscapes divert, including a wondrous spread that reimagines the constellations.
