9780763645601: Orlando on a Thursday

Changes and separations in a young child’s life are less worrisome with the help of playful rituals in this sweet, reassuring picture book.

Everything is an adventure when Orlando and his mommy spend the day together: drawing a picture, taking a walk, even having a snack. Then comes Thursday —the day Mami has to be busy in town. Remembering this makes Orlando sad, until Papi reminds him about all the super, super things that can happen when they’re together on a Thursday! Emma Magenta’s gently quirky narrative and fresh, charmingly naïve illustrations evoke a true toddler sensibility, while weaving a cocoon of love and security around young Orlando in a story as comforting as a mug of warm, frothy milk.

About the Author:

Emma Magenta is the illustrator of actress (and fellow Australian) Toni Collette’s picture book, PLANET YAWN. She is also the author-illustrator of three picture books for adults. ORLANDO ON A THURSDAY was inspired by the daily happenings with her two greatest loves: Orlando, her gorgeous son, and her beloved husband, Arturo Aguirre, with whom she lives in Sydney, Australia.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1–Orlando is looking forward to spending the day with Mami; it is a Thursday, however, and she is busy in town. Instead, Orlando and Papi have adventures tricycling; playing drums and dancing; and going for a walk and seeing a plane, a dog, and a beautiful tree. The best part of Thursday for Orlando, though, is when Mami comes home and the entire family is together. The simple phrases and two-dimensional collage illustrations of this first-person story lead readers to believe that a child has created it. However, the illustrations convey little expression and the writing is lackluster. The only spread that provides visual appeal shows Orlando and Papi admiring a special tree with red and golden leaves. Here the repetition of leaf patterns results in a bold and beautiful collage. While the execution falls short, the story line, which focuses on Orlando adjusting to separation from his Mami, is an important one.Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD
