Red Wagon by Renata Liwska -- ADVISABLE
Liwska, Renata. Red Wagon. Philomel Books, 2011. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Lucy the fox has a brand new red wagon and she wants to play with it. Her mother asks her to go to the market and get some vegetables. What starts as a chore, becomes an adventure. Lucy’s wagon becomes a boat, a pioneer wagon, a circus car, train, and space ship. Lucy “barely” makes it back home with the vegetables for dinner. Author/illustrator Renata Liwska shows how a mundane task with a little imagination can be an adventure. The illustrations are charming and will appeal to children. Pre-K, EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
