Summary
I only want to stay in.

In my pajamas.

Inside.

In. In. In.

For a boy and his toy giraffe, today is the perfect day to stay in. Snug in his pajamas, he reads books, bakes popovers, and plays with a big wicker basket--that he transforms into a rocket ship to fly in "innerspace." But soon, the outdoors is too tempting to resist, and he takes his wild imagination into

nature. That is, until it's time to come inside again.

Illustrated with the gorgeous paper cuts for which Nikki McClure is known, In reminds us of the essential childhood pleasures found in an engaged day of imaginative play and exploration, without electronics, scheduled activities, or adults.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "McClure's latest follows a young boy and his tiny toy giraffe through a very busy day of play and imagination, beginning with the conviction that the only place worth being is in: inside, in pajamas, and even in a basket that doubles as a rocket ship that will only fly in inner space. But when he wants to go play in the rain, his adventures shift outside, making out the new in. The text finds simple joys in one's surroundings, and the consistent use of in versus out drives home this basic concept. Using only yellow, black, and white, McClure's cut-paper illustrations are filled with amazing detail. Readers will have fun spotting the yellow giraffe in every picture and following the boy from one activity to the next. After an exhausting day, the story concludes with the boy snug in his bed and his giraffe gazing out the window at the big, yellow moon, leaving readers with a cozy sense of wonder and possibility.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's hard to imagine how McClure's creations could get any better, yet her cut-paper compositions continue to grow more inventive and fluid. A boy in pajamas sits on the floor with his yellow toy giraffe, playing with blocks. "I only want to stay in.... Inside. In. In. In." His unseen caretaker gives him all the time he needs. He builds, reads (even on the toilet), and eats marmalade on hot popovers. A wicker laundry basket figures prominently in his play; when he burrows down into it, the contrast between the softness of his hair and the basket's stiff weave is a small miracle. Eventually, the boy has had enough. Now he dashes "Outside. Outdoors. Out. Out. Out," where he hangs from dark branches and hunts for owls, finding-with the aid of a flashlight-a treeful of them, which McClure presents in a show-stopping gatefold spread. Intimacy, a love of the natural world, and veneration for the needs and perceptions of childhood ground this affectionate portrait of the richness and value of unrestricted, unprogrammed play.
