Amelia Frances Howard Gibbon Illustrator's Award
It's a rainy day, boring as can be, until Victor and Joey decide to make their own fun. Soon chairs turn into castles, bumblebees turn into tigers, and whales and starfish frolic in a watery kingdom.

"Rainy Day Magic
is a delight, a journey through the magical world of a child's daydreams. . . The drawings are wonderful. Fresh, vivid colour. Lovely renderings of a jungle, an undersea world, an enormously beautiful blue whale, an appealing pink sea horse ("winning at sea-solitaire") and a mauve starfish wearing sunglasses relaxing in a deck chair amid sea life of yellows and greens. This enchanting story can be enjoyed by very young children and older ones too. As an adult, I was immediately taken by the charm, wit, rhyming verse, and colour in the story."

"Although this book may be enjoyed anytime on its own merits, it could provide some much needed inspiration on a rainy day."
