"A delightful ode to the imagination," says Georgia Straight

When You Were Small (By Sara O’Leary, with illustrations by Julie Morstad) Sara O’Leary, a books columnist for the Vancouver Sun, has crafted a delightful ode to the imagination with When You Were Small. A father reminisces about his son’s early childhood, and if his son doesn’t remember that “When you were small we used to give you baths in the teapot, and when you were done we could just tip it over and pour you out”, well, what can you expect from kids, anyway? Julie Morstad’s delicate, muted illustrations perfectly complement O’Leary’s whimsy. This handsome title showcases Vancouver’s Simply Read Books doing what it does best: simple story, lush pictures, perfect package. ($19.95) -John Burns, Georgia Straight, April 20, 2006
