Imagine a Place is a gorgeous companion to the critically acclaimed Imagine a Night and Imagine a Day, and reminds us that imagination is powerful enough to take us anywhere we want to go.
US Kirkus Review » Imagine a day . . . when the edge of the map is only the beginning of what we can explore." Like its companion, Imagine a Night (2003), this showcases Gonsalves's Escher-like, surrealist art, paring oblique captions to a series of transformations. Children step onto, and then into, a map; a high stone bridge dissipates into grey sky while its arches become sailing ships; fence pickets become skyscrapers; pines change into a forest of green-roofed cathedrals; each book on a shelf becomes a doorway to a different scene. There's no plotline, but the artist populates his precisely detailed paintings with grave-looking adults and children, thus creating a formal air that nicely underscores the general sense of mystery. Viewers who enjoy poring over such painterly imagination-stretchers as Quint Buchholz's Collector of Moments (1999) or Sarah Perry's If- (1995) will sink into this, too. (Picture book. 7-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
