"Supposing I looked in the mirror one day and saw someone who wasn't me at all and I said, Who are you? and he said, Mr. Endicott..."
This is just one of the many hilarious possibilities put forth in Alastair Reid's charming book. "Supposing" is a perfect rainy-day or anytime read, and the kind of book that can be opened at basically any page and enjoyed thoroughly and often (according to this reviewer's seven year old niece).
Bob Gill's pleasing drawings and clever use of color help to enhance the silliness of the ideas the author puts forth. From calling people in the night and practicing your horrible sounds to dreaming of an orange river and waking up to see that the dream was true, "Supposing" helps to broaden the avenues of possibility-and impossibility in a fun and engaging way.
Though the sentences can be long-winded, the words are small and the message they send are very funny, making this a good book for readers who are still building their reading skills.
The reviewer has read this book numerous times.
