PreS-Gr. 2. The creators of The Princess Knight (2004) and Pirate Girl (2005) offer another picture book, this time featuring the adventures of contemporary kids close to home. "Sometimes when Ben wakes up he is a wild wolf. Or a knight." In short, deadpan sentences, Funke describes a boy's imagined games. Armed with toy swords and water pistols, he pretends to protect his older sister, Anna, from endless threats--monsters, burglars, and bears. But at night, when "the heating creaks like the sound of a thousand biting beetles," it's Anna who protects her frightened brother. Wright's wonderfully expressive acrylic paintings elevate this simple glimpse of sibling play into something special. The animated scenes, filled with Ben's imagined foes, perfectly capture the wild-eyed, physical fun; the shifting emotions as brother and sister tussle and tease; and finally, their comfort. For another sibling story, suggest LeUyen Pham's Big Sister, Little Sister (2005) or Lynne Jonnell's Let's Play Rough (2000). ((Reviewed July 2006)) Copyright 2006 Booklist Reviews.
