In Einat Tsarfati's The Neighbors, a young child imagines the fantastic lives of the tenants on each floor. Or, perhaps circus acrobats, explorers, vampires, and mermaids actually do live in her building. It's unclear, but it hardly matters in this charming book. Tsarfati's illustrations of the neighbors' apartments are bright and richly detailed.
Compared to the wildly interesting lives of her neighbors, her parents may seem a little boring. Then again, maybe they have surprises of their own.
