From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-- The pages of this oversized picture book are filled with activity. Four to five scenes appear on each page, some in bright color, and many in striking black silhouette. The eye is led through picture and text to follow the lively imagination of a small boy, Henry, as he plays with his shadow theater. Paul, his mother's friend, has brought Henry a box to make his theater, and has cut out puppets from black paper and fastened them to sticks. Henry enters the shadowbox world, traveling with Firetooth the dragon and a beautiful princess to find the King of Shadowland and his faithful knight, Sir Lancelot. Thanks to Henry, the black-paper puppets find out what color is, and thanks to Henry's paintbox, a rainbow of colors, polka dots, and patterns liven up the world they inhabit. So much is happening in this book--with a funny little orchestra going one way, Sir Lancelot trying to rescue the princess, and the dragon trying on different colors--that the plot grows increasingly complex. However, the extraordinary pictures invite repeated inspection, and the plethora of "happenings" are so typical of a youngster's active imagination that this book, with the right child, may well become a favorite. --Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
