The blending of photographs and art provides an appropriately dream-like, imaginary quality to this enjoyable story of imagination. Louie is teased by his friends for his grandfather's junk yard, who then tells him "They should know better than to call this junk. All a person needs is some imagination! And a little of that stuff can take you right out of this world." And it turns out, that's what it does, as Louie and his friends build the Imagination I, which takes them off into orbit, by the moon, and through asteroids, before finally returning home. Hardcover with dust jacket.
When the other kids make fun of Louie and call his father ?the junkman,? his dad explains that the socalled junk he loves ?can take you right out of this world??with a little imagination. So Louie builds the spaceship Imagination I and blasts off into his own space odyssey. Reissued just in time for the fortieth anniversary of the first lunar landing, this fantastical Keats adventure celebrates the power of imagination.
Ezra Jack Keats, who died in 1983, was one of the first authors to create a realistic, friendly, multi-ethnic urban setting in picture books for young children. His legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter - the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others - whose statue can be seen in a park in Brooklyn, New York.
