Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

A brown-haired boy serves as a reader surrogate as he imagines the ways he would like to show appreciation for 15 people in his life, including his parents, babysitter, doctor, and even teddy bear. Each spread features an open-ended question ("If you could take them anywhere, where would you go?"), and the answers are revealed in a Mondrian-esque grid that essentially creates 15 mini-narratives. Surrey's cheery, 1950s-retro graphics show the boy giving an aunt a guidebook and traveling to the South Pole together, while board games and a carnival trip befit his grandfather. Readers looking for ways to express gratitude to the people near and dear to them will find an abundance of ideas, from thoughtful gifts to meaningful acts of kindness. Ages 6-9.
