Clinton Gregory is a fanciful little boy who lives a secret life after everyone else is asleep. He wrestles dragons, rockets into space, teaches dinosaurs new tricks, and eats with giants. And he has even more secret plans for next week.

In this author-illustrated book, we get to see a child's imagination at work. Using paraphernalia from his room, Clinton Gregory creates the most elaborate fantasy worlds in which he plays. You, the reader, only see what Clinton Gregory envisions, but as he begins in his rather normal little boy bedroom, you can flip back to see which piece was the springboard for this newest adventure.

I love picture books that encourage imaginative thinking in children. And my kids love to see what Clinton Gregory will participate in next. (Though, my daughter thinks it is absolutely unfair that she doesn't get to know the secret of "next week.") The illustrations are bright, full-page and lively--with a tip of the hat to Escher. They make me want to jump in and fly around the world on plates of spaghetti.

This book has just the right amount of whimsy and silliness to keep kids asking for it again and again.

Armchair Interviews agrees.

Our sons love picture books at bedtime but it isn't always easy to find one book which appeals to both a 6-year old and a 4-year old. We published an Amazon list titled "Young boys' bedtime books" to share our best discoveries with other parents.

Full of silly illustrations and imagination, this book not only entertained our boys but also provided them with a springboard for making their own stories (flying around on plates of spaghetti led to several new stories). Here's a hint for repeat readings: go back to Clinton Gregory's bedroom and see if your kids can match all his stories with things in his room.

My only complaint is that the book promotes a stereotype: kids hate vegetables (broccoli is the offender in this story). My sons like vegetables (check out my Amazon list "Kitchen gadgets for the family" with reviews of the OXO Salad Spinner and the Swissmar Borner V-Slicer Plus for some handy kitchen tools that make vegetable preparation easier). In fairness though, this isn't the first picture book we've read that maligns vegetables. We've become adept at skipping over the stereotype.

In summary, this delightful picture book makes a great bedtime story and a wonderful springboard for your child's imagination.
