Summary

The author and her eight-year-old granddaughter, Clara, explore the world of their imaginations in this unique children’s book illustrated by Clara.   What if it were possible . . . for a dog to climb a tree? What if it were possible to climb like you and me? What if pretty butterflies could spread their wings and swim? And elephants could wear their trunks while working out at gyms? Anything can happen if you think it might. In your imagination, ANYTHING is RIGHT!   Eight-year-old Clara has a vivid imagination. One day while visiting her Yia-Yia, author Joanne Miller, they watched Clara’s dog, Harley, desperately try to climb a tree to get a squirrel. Then Joanne asked Clara a provocative question: “What if it were possible for a dog to climb a tree?”   And the rest is history.   Joanne and Clara had lots of giggles coming up with crazy lines for this book, and Clara drew each illustration with water color pencils. Clara and her Yia Yia don’t believe play and imagination are only for children. In What If It Were Possible? they demonstrate the limitless wonders we can discover in our minds.

    The bold, bright colors of India leap off the page in this picture book retelling of how Ganesha helped write the epic Hindu poem, the Mahabharata.  
     
    Ganesha is just like any other kid, except that he has the head of an elephant and rides around on a magical mouse. And he loves sweets, but when Ganesha insists on biting into a super jumbo jawbreaker laddoo, his tusk breaks off! With the help of the wise poet Vyasa, and his friend Mr. Mouse, Ganesha learns that what seems broken can be quite useful after all. With vibrant, graphic illustrations, expressive characters, and offbeat humor, this is a wonderfully inventive rendition of a classic tale.
