Description: *"Joyful and clever and with oh so much child appeal, this lovely picture book captures the glories of childhood imagining. On an orderly walk with her teacher and the children in her class, a little Chinese girl spots a piece of red string on the sidewalk and stops to pick it up. 'Slither slish', it's barely a moment before she has transformed the string into the tail of a big scaly dragon, a tightrope for a circus acrobat, a 'sky trail of popping fireworks, ' and all manner of things that crack and ripple and 'ah-whoosh' with sound. On light brown, fibrous recycled paper, the unaffected gouache-and-felt-tipped-marker illustrations evoke the sweep and quiet dazzle of the child's creative spirit as well as the flavor of Chinese culture -- from the Great Wall to the arch of fireworks across the sky. When the little girl rejoins her class and shares her magical find, the children break from their orderly row to join her in a 'slisher slish, / push-a-pat, / snap, tah-tah...squiggle of a line' to revel in the day. A beguiling celebration of the delight children find in the simplest things." -- Booklist (starred review)
