When Zane goes rambling, his friends call him crazy and refuse to play along. When he finds a shining star, it doesn't bother him when his friends try to tell him it's just a hubcap. Undaunted, Zane uses his finds to create a secret project that piques his friends' curiosity. After watching him ramble around the neighborhood, finding magic in the ordinary, his friends are eventually drawn into his imaginative game. Through the book's art, attentive readers will see that Zane is using his finds to create a pirate ship, and once his friends realize what he's up to, even the most skeptical realists join the fun and sail the afternoon away. Zane's imagination sees the cowpoke's lasso in a piece of vine, the pirate's golden ring in an old pop top, and many other treasures that have been stolen from today's children by electronic entertainment. Rambling enforces the joy of imaginative play.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 4-This story follows the pattern of Valine Hobbs's poem "One Day When We Went Walking," but the variations make the rhythm awkward in places. Still, the rhyming and the repetition add to the magical feeling of the tale. An imaginative protagonist sees magic in everyday objects, but friends point out each find's mundanity. Hobbs determines to avoid these pessimists, but Bennett finds a happier solution, inspiring friends to join in the game of pretend. Boys and girls cast aside their mockery one by one until the entire group is playing pirate in an old packing crate. The final page abandons the rhyme pattern with the exclamation, "Hey! What's that?" perhaps meant to draw readers into the game of identifying old junk as magical items. The stylized, jagged artwork is full of color and movement, and the name for each treasure is drawn across the scene with playful, multicolored lettering. Black-and-white insets give a washed-out look to the naysayers as they mock their dreamer friend, Zane. This is a fun paean to imaginative play. Combine it with Alice McLerran's Roxaboxen (1991) and Antoinette Portis's Not a Stick (2008, both HarperCollins) for more inspiration to go out and play.-Heidi Estrin, Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FLα(c) Copyright 2011.
