Most people complain about Mondays but my dreaded day is Thursday. I have such a love hate relationship with Thursday that when I saw Janeen Brian’s book, “Where Does Thursday Go?” I had to check it out because I would love for Thursday to go where it needs to be.
Thursday is Bruno’s Birthday and he doesn’t want to the special day to end. Bruno embarks on a journey with his friend Bert to see if they can discover where Thursday goes so that they may say goodnight before Friday comes.
The pair search for Thursday in a variety of places (places which offer the reader perfect opportunity for making silly sounds) until they come to realize that Thursday is not something they can find and keep but a feeling they can enjoy.
The text is really fun to look at with it’s mix of traditional font and what looks like a child’s handwriting. The illustrations by Stephen Michael King are sweet, providing a mystical background as Bruno and Bert search. Children ages 4-7 will especially enjoy this book. Older readers may like the challenges faced by Bruno and Bert and can offer solutions for where Thursday may have gone.
