KIRKUS REVIEW

Meeow are his friends are back in their fourth imaginative adventure (Meeow and the Little Chairs, 2009, etc.). A rainy day leads the five to Meeow’s toy chest, where they find cardboard, tape, colored paper and foil. Each gets to work on something that will transform them into a character: a hunter, a knight, a dragon rider, a king and a princess. Clever Meeow ties them all together with the titular blue table: A red blanket over the top, some blue blocks evenly spaced on the surface—and, voilà, the friends have a castle. The final spread transforms the setting from reality to the scene that is in the friends’ imaginations. As in his other books, Braun uses an omniscient narrator to tell the story, describing Meeow’s actions and asking the kinds of questions that parents reading with their children might: “What will the friends play on such a rainy day?” “What are they making?” Created with hand-painted shapes that were digitized, assembled and colored, the bright illustrations on plain backgrounds stand out and keep the focus on the creative play. More tinder for many imaginative sparks. (Picture book. 2-6)
