Review

There's something rather sweet about this little book. We get to meet Jeremy, a rumpled kid wearing big glasses. He speaks directly to us, telling about his ambition (actually his list of ambitions) when he was five and his secret hiding place and his good friend Max, among other things.
Now that he is six, some things have changed but some things never do, like good friends.
The illustrations are funny and suit the text very well. There's an exuberance and joy in the book which is catching and the point is well taken.
If you're looking for books about self concept and growing up, this is a good one.
