Whoosh! Strange and wonderful things happen when a little girl lets her creativity fly in this buoyant picture-book debut.

It’s a gray, gray day when Katie decides to liven herself up. After all, the birds in the picture on her wall look a lot more exciting than she does, and much happier, too. So Katie puts on her brightest clothing, takes hold of a paintbrush, and lets her imagination take flight. But it’s more than her spirits that end up soaring!

About the Author:

Polly Dunbar has a degree in illustration from the University of Brighton in England. She says, "FLYAWAY KATIE is about the ability we all have to change our mood and make ourselves feel happier. All you need is a bit of creativity and a lick of paint! I certainly feel much brighter when I put on my best blue shoes." Polly Dunbar lives and works in London. This is her first picture book.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–Young Katie, who is "feeling gray," gazes at a colorful painting on the wall and decides that it looks "like a much better place to be." To cheer herself up, she puts on bright clothing, starting with a green hat, then yellow tights, blue shoes, and a pink dress. The more color she adds, the bigger her smile becomes. Next, she puts on red lipstick, paints her face blue to match her shoes, and paints orange stripes on her arms. Suddenly, something magical happens. Katie sprouts wings and flies into the painting, where she spends her afternoon frolicking with the colorful birds, until reassuringly, "...it was time to fly home for her bath!" The mixed-media illustrations perfectly capture Katie's transformation from a totally gray-outlined figure to a brightly hued creature with patterned feathers. The action is neatly contained within gray lined rectangles until Katie's transformation, when splashes of color push their way into the cream-colored borders. As she enters the painting, the illustrations become full bleed, conveying a sense of freedom and action. Told at just the right pace, this whimsical story presents a gentle reminder of the power of a child's imagination. The large text and brief sentences invite beginning readers along for the adventure.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
