"Peter Fortune is a dreamer . . . and here are seven of] his fabulous daydreams.Each is a separate adventure, among them] taming a bully and catching a burglar, and young readers should have no trouble empathizing with his escapades. A delightful blend of serious whimsy and hilarious gravity."--SLJ. "How would it feel to swap bodies with a cat, with a baby, with a grown-up? To be those creatures and still have your ten-year-old consciousness? British author McEwan writes a simple, visual prose--comic, deadpan, and lyrical--that captures the physicalness of this] wild fantasy."--BL. "A rare find." --VOYA.
