The Think-Ups

author/illustrator: Claire Alexander

Whatís there to do when youíre stuck inside on a rainy day? If youíre like Kiki, with a big imagination, you teach your sister how to play the Think-Ups. Itís easy: you take turns thinking up any animal you like (A bunny! A moose! An octopus! A koala!) and, just like that, that creature (or several of them) will appear. In a blink, your house will be overflowing with hopping, hungry, messy Think-Ups. Quick, Kiki! What are the rules for ending the game? A charming story about keeping boredom at bay, with sure appeal for little animal lovers and creative thinker-uppers.

When you canít go outside to play, itís time to call on your imaginationóand summon all the marvelous creatures you can think up.
