School Library Journal - 10/01/2014 PreS-K—An older sister tells her brother about all the crazy things that she and the neighborhood kids supposedly did while he was taking a nap. Apparently inspired by the toys scattered in the boy's bedroom, she spins an outrageous tale of how they dug up yards with bulldozers, found a dinosaur skeleton, ate junk food brought by robots, set off fireworks, played with pirates and astronauts, and generally ran amok. This yarn is illustrated with Blitt's scrawly ink-and-pen watercolor pictures on full spreads and features a cast of oddly shaped children engaged in their various bizarre activities. Although the peculiar string of events may amuse some children, the story seems to lack focus and does not have much of a plot. An additional purchase.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
