This book is about a story from the point of view of a young boy named Sam. The character in the story is known as Sam Sam. Sam Sam and his friend Marzipan, a white and ginger cat go on magical adventures inside a cubby house. In this house, inanimate objects come to life and go along on the imaginative journey. Sam Sam and his friends find themselves in usual places filled with treats- a true child’s fantasy. However, we can only fantasize for a while, then, oops, it is time for reality! The illustrations were cute and the story was short enough to hold a young reader’s attention. We recommend for preschoolers. We give this book 4 stars.
