Description

Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination. She has been a girl who lived under the sea and a boy raised by wolves. She has had adventures in wonderland and visited the world of fairytales. She whispers to the dresses in her closet and talks to birds in the treetops. She has wings that take her anywhere she wants to go, but that always bring her home again. She likes to make things -- boats out of boxes and castles out of cushions. But more than anything Sadie likes stories, because you can make them from nothing at all. For Sadie, the world is so full of wonderful possibilities ... This is Sadie, and this is her story.

This amazing little book will surely fuel the imagination of any child. Sadie is a little girl whose enormous imagination takes her to magical worlds where she lives under the sea as a mermaid, is raised as a boy by wolves, attends the tea party in Alice in Wonderland and even interacts with the characters and happenings in fairytales. She befriends her clothes in her closet, chatting away to them, hangs out in treetops with her friends the birds, and has a special pair of wings that transport her anywhere she wants to go making sure she gets back to her home safely. What more could a girl ask for? Life is fun, exciting, and full of possibilities. She is also a very crafty little girl who makes boats out of boxes to sail her to new adventures and castles out of cushions. The sky's the limit .... her imagination can whisk her off to lands unknown in a heartbeat.

She loves to read books best of all, but even more than that, she loves to imagine herself right inside of the storybook plot. The beautiful, whimiscal illustrations have her plunge into the depth of the storyline making her feel happy and free.

She imagines on a grand scale, she plays with all her heart, and she literally loses herself in her make-believes worlds. She revels in the prospects of her next imagination explosion. I love the book and highly recommend it.

This book is the most adorable thing I've read in ages. I LOVE the little foxes throughout - really all of the drawings are just spectacular. On top of all that, the "message" is really sweet: use your imagination and you can go anywhere.

A colorful, beautifully illustrated book about one girl's imagination, and the power it has to transform ordinary things into great adventures. This book is sure to delight young readers with this exploration into the mind.

This Is Sadie is a beautiful little book about a little girl with a big imagination. The bright illustrations look almost like crayon over watercolors, giving them a childish, innocent feel. Sadie imagines herself doing all sorts of things, from sailing a ship to living with wolves to being the hero of a fairy tale, and the precocious little girl is unlimited by reality or cultural expectations. I love the simple story, and I love the author's *subtle, unstated* theme of non-gendered, unlimited dreams.

Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination. With books, friends, random supplies, she fills her days. From before her parents wake up until bedtime, she is never bored.

This is a well-illustrated, cute book that shows how magical a child's imagination really is.It is simple, which helps make the book even more whimsical. I hope that small children will appreciate this one as much as I do.

This beautiful picture book captures the childhood experience of imaginative play, and celebrates books and stories as well. With a strong, distinct heroine, and lovely illustrations, this one I will be a treat for children and grown-ups alike.
