Book Description

Feb. 22 2011
All Lucy wants to do is play with her brand-new, bright red wagon. But her mother has other plans for her-and the wagon. Lucy must go to the market and buy vegetables for dinner. Lucy doesn't want to do chores! But she sets off for the market nonetheless, hauling her red wagon with her. Before long, her ordinary trip becomes a high-seas adventure, a ride through outer space, and a day at the circus. As long as she has her red wagon, not even chores can get in the way of Lucy's fun.

New York Times bestseller Renata Liwska's most vibrant art ever takes center stage in this imaginative book for the youngest of readers.

Product Description

Review

"This title owes its delight to the well-balanced, deadpan disparity between the spare, straightforward text and the increasingly wild scenarios depicted in the digitally colored pencil illustrations. According to the words, the animals climb a hill, weather some rain, load up at the market, regroup after hitting a rock, and return home. The pictures, however, show a different story: along the way, the red wagon transforms from pirate ship to covered wagon to circus caravan to train to rocket ship to truck in detailed scenes children will want to revisit. Preschoolers will recognize the reality-blurring borders of their own made-up worlds; children on the cusp of independent reading will enjoy following the simple, bold-type sentences; and both audiences will hope for future adventures from Lucy and her friends. —Booklist, starred review


"Liwska renders the illustrations in soft-hued pencil and digital coloring, similar in style to those she created for Deborah Underwood's The Quiet Book. Adding to the quality of this gentle yet adventurous tale is the way the illustrations provide an imaginative alternative visual narrative that enhances the straightforward text. An enjoyable story to read with creative little critters just like Lucy."  —Horn Book Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute adventure for preschoolers Sept. 3 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My two-year-old son loves this book. He usually likes books about cars, trucks, and trains the best; this one has enough of those and some cute forest animals. The pictures are lovely, too. I actually enjoyed reading it fifteen or so times before we took it back to the library.

I bought a red wagon for my 3 year old grandson and got this book to go with it. The story is delightful and the illustrations are beautiful. I would recommend this book as a "keeper".

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative Dec 19 2011
By Debnance at Readerbuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Lucy has a new red wagon. She wants to play with it, but her mother wants her to use it to pick up some groceries for her. Lucy uses her imagination to ride the enormous waves of an ocean during a storm, drive a covered wagon, be the engineer on a train, and ride on a rocketship using her wagon.

"Lucy quickly pushed the wagon down the hill. (Illustration shows Lucy and her friends riding the ocean waves during a big storm)
By the time she got to the bottom, it was really coming down!" (Illustration shows the ocean waves are very big.)

Nice to see a story where children are encouraged to use their imaginations.
