Alix (alixharvey) | 5 comments I read it in the 90's - a child uses their imagination to turn a chair into all sorts of things like a fort, a car, a boat etc. Lovely illustrations. Thank you so much!

Alix, sound like this a picture book?

Can you describe the illustrations - e.g., simple or detailed, realistic or cartoony, painted watercolors or bold graphics, bright or dark colors, black & white? Do they remind you of a similar illustrator or picture book author?

Alix (alixharvey) | 5 comments Yes a picture book. Detailed pictures, similar in style I think to "we're going on a bear hunt" - light colours, realistic more than cartoony.

Thanks. Added "picture" to the topic header. Feel free to update it.

"We're Going on a Bear Hunt" - which author?

Neither of those unfortunately!

Unfortunately not. It was simpler than that - like the kid turns the chair on its side and puts a cloth on it and it's a chair, sort of thing.
