We Would Pretend

  • A fantastical story of two friends who venture to the limits of their imagination.


    When two mischievous friends are told to go outside to play, the backyard becomes their setting for a frantic, thrilling adventure.


    As they role-play their way from becoming King and Queen of Pumpkins to embarking on a voyage to Mars, their vivid imaginations give them magical powers to venture forth and fight their enemies mercilessly. It’s only when they’re abruptly brought back to reality that they’ll find themselves truly in danger!

    “The story is carried by energetic, digitally created illustrations in crayon colors with minimal shading and a solid beige background. Bursts of yellows, oranges, and reds create eye-catching illustrations perfect for storytime. (…) Rollicking, imagination-inspired outdoor fun.” — Kirkus Reviews
