Pick of the Week: The Man from the Land of Fandango

The Man from the Land of Fandango by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Polly Dunbar (Clarion Books, 2012)
Are you ready for a visit from the man from the land of Fandango? He only comes but once every 500 years, the reader learns, but, boy does it look like fun when he gets here! Polly Dunbar's whimsical illustrations depict the fun and frolic of this musical, dancing (on the ceiling, no less!) gentleman's visit. A great rhythmic and imaginative read-aloud.

Dunbar's illustrations are always exuberant, and work really well in this book I think.
