Fletcher, Alison Lucy and Lila Bonnier Publishing, 2016. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
This is a story of a girl names Lucy who goes to school. During
art class they are asked to draw about their weekend. All the other kids draw
and share real things that happened to them. So does Lucy, it just so happens
that her weekend involved a pink elephant. The other kids tease her and don’t
believe her but the teacher believes in her.
This is a cute story, but I can’t quite grasp the message the author
is trying to get across. That some kids really do have real imaginary friends?
Teachers should always believe in students? It was a just a bit odd for my
taste. Illustrations are quite cute!
