Summary
Families everywhere will recognize themselves in this clever, hilarious, and completely irresistible picture book. Five minutes is a lot of time... or is it? Well, it depends on what you're doing, of course! Follow one little boy and his family on a very busy day, as he discovers that sometimes five minutes feels like forever--like when you're finishing up at the dentist's office or waiting in line for the bathroom or in the backseat on a long car ride--and sometimes five minutes feels like no time at all--like when you're playing your favorite game or at the tippy top of a roller coaster or snuggling up with a book before bedtime.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Time is relative" serves as this volume's premise and punch line as readers follow a little boy with round eyes through his day, and five-minute time frames-usually imposed on him by the adult world-shrink and stretch depending on the circumstances. The time frame is long when the boy's mother needs to handle some boring bank business-"Five minutes is forever," write Scanlon and Vernick (Dear Substitute)-but it's way too short when there are puppies to see in the pet shop window ("Only five minutes?") or there's a chance of winning a carnival fishing game ("Seriously. Hang on"). The crisply paced and smartly varied vignettes build to a sweet closing moment, when the father extends a snuggle and bedtime story by an extra five minutes. Tallec (What If...), working in smudgy hues of blue and green acrylic paint punctuated with orange and red, puts his protagonist through a wide range of comically dramatic poses. Funny and astute, the volume represents five minutes well spent. Ages 3-7. Authors' agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Kirsten Hall, Catbird Productions.
