Just imagine what it would be like to be as small as a mouse; or as big as a house. Imagine exploring the depths of the ocean, travelling into the past or the future - or something even stranger...

This wonderfully inventive and interactive book allows a child to tell their own story, combining new elements each time. And with intricately detailed illustrations for parent and child to pore over together, this really is a book to share time and time again.

We loved this book. I initially thought it was pitched at age 5-7 but my 10 year old was also captivated by it. The children sat down together with it and very page opened up a discussion between them. My daughter declared "it's great that I get to choose a bit of my own story on every page. It is great for my children's imagination. My 10 year old is not keen on reading but is looking forward to reading this to his younger brother.

Review from William. Age 6 I love this book. I really liked the pages where you had to imagine being big. It was really funny that if you were really big, you would have to have your beans and sausages delivered by a dumper truck! The book gave you ideas about why being big would be really fun….and other ideas about how it would not be fun at all! Each page had something different to imagine, like being different animals or which pet you might be. We have got ‘You Choose’ at home and this book is just as much fun as that book. The pictures are colourful and brilliantly drawn. There is plenty to look at. Me and my brother love looking at this book together and choosing what we want to be. It is a good book to share. Review from Sam. Age 3. Sam loves ‘You Choose’ by the same authors. This follow up ‘Just Imagine’ was equally well received by this little boy! In fact, I think my children like it more than ‘You Choose’ because it engaged them to imagine what it might be like to be big or small….or something else entirely, rather than simply choosing something to be or where to go. My three year old is a huge fan of the colourful and imaginative illustrations of Nick Sharratt. He’s just coming into that age now where he gets the humour in the drawings. For example, he thought being so small that you could have a bath in a tea cup was incredibly funny. He enjoyed pointing to the images that he thought were very amusing, and he began to talk a lot about what he was seeing in those pictures – so it was good for motivating conversation and developing his speech. We would have no hesitation in recommending ‘Just Imagine’. This is a must have for any child’s home library or it would make a brilliant gift. Both my 3 year old and 6 year old loved this book but it would suit from birth to 7 years. It’s a great relaxing and fun read before bedtime, brilliant for stimulating some imaginative possibilities for a night of adventurous dreams!

Georgie was given this book for Christmas and we have had hours of imaginative fun with it. The language and ideas that she has used and developed are incredible. The illustrations are so detailed that every time we go back to the book we see something different. We have also have lots of giggles with some of the ideas!
A fabulous book for developing language and creative thinking.

This is a lovely book to sit and share with your children. I have 4 year old twins and an 8 year old and we can all share this book and enjoy it together as a family. There are lots of things to talk about in the pictures and it is sure to spark their imagination.

You Choose is an absolute favourite in out house and this book is just as good. My daughter will spend ages looking at the pictures which have hundreds of different parts. The story in Just Imagine is always different! We loved searching the llustratìons and laughing at the silly ideas it is a wonderful book to ignite the imagination and great for a wide age range.

We have had this book since it was published in 2013. It was one of the few books that my son regular returns to and looks over. It is filled with bold, colourful illustrations, which are very appealing to young children. However, an older child, like my son, still seem to get something out of it. It is just filled with possibilities, ideas and creativity. It inspires a child to imagine and create for themselves. (My son loves to use it as inspiration for his drawings.)

My 4 year old loved You Choose so much we got him the follow up, Just Imagine. It's a great book, with lots of things to think and talk about but I think You Choose is still my favourite, especially for a younger child. In Just Imagine you are asked to imagine being really big and really small, what you are made of, types of animal you might like to me. I agree with another reviewer that You Choose is better for younger ones.

Not as captivating to my kids as the previous book You Choose - a few pages felt more aimed at older children particularly on travelling through time & inventing machines but still a good enjoyable read, gets the kids imaginations going as they try to decide what they would choose on every page and a book they ask to read again and again.
