Ferdie is having too much fun at home to be bothered to walk to school. His older sister, Viola, smartly entices him by whipping out his “superfast cape” and “rocket blaster boots” and they’re off in A Few Blocks. Alternating points of view, and between reality and fiction, the siblings imagine their way to school, encountering a castle, princess, sailing ship, sea creatures, and a remote island, all while traversing their own familiar streets. Ages four to eight.
