KIRKUS REVIEW

Mild, rhymed elaboration of more ""ifs"": ""If you could be the size of anything you see/ Would you be as tiny as a pea?"" Most of the extrapolations don't go beyond rhyme-determined thoughts: ""You could play hide-and-seek in a log/ if you were as big as a big bullfrog."" The big guys--elephant, giraffe, kangaroo--are in gray and white, the smaller animals--frog, goldfish--in color, and the little boy (in some, a little girl) is proportionately matched for each page. Not much to catch the eye, not enough to turn an ear.
