Summary
Young readers accompany a young girl on a journey into the marvelous realms of imagination and possibility when she is asked 'What do you want to be?' in a unique poetical fantasy complemented with vibrant and beautiful illustrations. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: What do you want to be? a young girl is asked. Her answer is full of the soaring imagination and daring of youth: I want to be in motion but I want the ants in my pants to sometimes take a vacation. Sometimes I want to be slow but not so slow that everything passes me by. Poet Thylias Moss's extraordinary images are brought to life with Jerry Pinkney's equally extraordinary illustrations. Exhilirating, verbally and visually; the very essence of youthful energy and summertime freedom. --Kirkus Reviews
