Described by a friend as very "conceptual," Anne Herbauts' Monday is a poetically-worded picture book, with fascinating illustrations and textured pages that invite young readers to touch... Although a little bit vague on what the actual concept might be (the passage of time, perhaps?), I was so dazzled by the brilliant illustrations that I didn't much care... The author's clever play on words - Monday's two friends are named Lester Day and Tom Morrow - was a nice touch...

Overall, I would say that this is the sort of deceptively simple story that will reward longer reflection. But as a picture book for young children, for whom it would seem intended, I am not sure that it will succeed. ( )
