If I Was a Banana (HB)

Author(s): Alexandra Tylee


If I was a banana, I would be that one, so beautifully yellow and full of banana...This boys-eye-view of the everyday brings alive all the wonder and oddity of the world inside our own heads. It beautifully captures the magic that a child can find in common objects and day-to-day encountersbananas, clouds, toys, breakfast, stars. Each of these simple things sparks a new train of thought, and the result is a gorgeous mix of the poetic and the prosaic that will touch the childand the heartin all of us.
