Sarabella is always thinking conjuring, daydreaming, and creating new worlds from her imagination. There is so much going on in her head that it can barely be contained. But there are times when daydreaming is decidedly not a good thing like when you're supposed to be doing multiplication tables. Luckily, Sarabella has an understanding teacher and with his encouragement she comes up with her own idea to show everyone who she is.
From the bestselling creator of Skippyjon Jones comes a heartwarming story about the importance of imagination. Mr. Fantozzi is a special force in Sarabella's life who both appreciates her creativity and encourages her to find ways to connect with her peers. With vivid illustrations that capture Sarabella's whirling thoughts, this is celebration of the magic of free thinking and the power of an educator to change a child's life.
"Readers have much more access to Sarabella’s thoughts thanks to Schachner’s sprawling mixed-media collages, themselves a tangle of imagery and loosely formed associations: in one jam-packed thought balloon, lithographic images of sea turtles, sheep, and a cabbage jockey for space with hand-drawn ants, words in English and French, and a cartoon string bean. Mr. Fantozzi is a memorable force in Sarabella’s life: he never shames her imaginative wanderings and instead celebrates her inquisitiveness." Publishers Weekly
