Imagine a Night and Imagine a Day by Sarah L. Thomson, Rob Gonsalves

Two picture books.

The text, I'm afraid, is flat-footed and too closely connected to the paintings.

However, the paintings themselves are marvels of tromp l'oeil transitions between one thing and the next. Like a sand castle -- or is it a castle? A tree house that is also a real one. . . a couple in each seemed uninspired to me, but most work well.
