Trinka Hakes Noble tells a fantastic story about a field trip to the farm that goes awry when Jimmy introduces his boa to the farm animals. The narrator is very deadpan and matter of fact as she relates the story, but Steven Kellogg's artwork allows us to see the chaos that she never mentions. There's always something going on in the background and you've never seen more expressive animal faces. ( )

This book is a creative take on the way a child's imagination embellishes simple life happenings. It is fun to walk through the book with children and point out the details of the elaborate drawings. Key parts of the story are found only in the pictures and cannot be inferred by reading only the words of the text. i appreciated the way that while the little girl was telling the story, the illustrations showed her dressing in an astronaut outfit and getting ready for her next imaginative adventure.
