After reading the 2nd book in this series, A Few Bites, I knew I wanted to read this one.
It is time for Viola and Ferdie to go to school, but Ferdie
doesn't want to. So Viola turns their walk into adventure after
adventure until she's done spinning adventures. Then Ferdie picks up
where she left off.
As with the second book, the adventures bring color
into Viola and Ferdie's black and white world. Also like the second
book, their imagination overlaps the real world allowing the reader to
catch glimpses of both.
I actually enjoyed this one more than the
second, but I don't know if that's because of the ending, because I have
a better understanding of how the books and illustrations work,
or if it's just better.
