Sky-High Guy by Nina Crews

Jack and his action figure Guy are quite a pair! They love to team up and have great adventures. But when Guy gets stuck in a tree, will Jack be able to get him down? Is this the end of Jack and Guy's adventures?

Imagination is one of the main characters in this book; the whole story either celebrates the characters' imagination or engages in 'what if?' thinking. The photographs that accompany the story could be great for children who respond to more realistic imagery. There's also a nice message about brothers and cooperation. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it took me right back to when I was playing with my own 'action figures' (Barbies, in my case) and how much fun I had.
