Waddle! (Scanimation Picture Books)

by

Waddle! (Scanimation Picture Books) Cover

 

Staff Pick

At first I was skeptical whether this new world of crazy optical trickery would live up to the hype, but I was happily surprised. Rufus Butler Seder has created a unique experience, using rhyme along with "moving" pictures, that is super engaging.

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"On the heels of Gallop! and Swing!, Seder's latest Scanimation ode to movement adds color to its bestselling formula, mostly to good effect. Like the previous books, the simple text poses playful questions ('Can you hop like a frog? flip-flop-floop!'). The level of detail on a few animals (the hopping frog, leaping dolphin and chomping alligator) is striking, but the addition of color also has the effect of reducing the contrast, and thus the detail, in others (notably the pig, hummingbird and bear), whose features are indistinct. Still, readers should find the animations mesmerizing. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

It's Waddle — and it's in color. And boy, is it irresistible. In the same way that kids can't read Gallop without wanting to gallop around the room, Waddle, an animals-in-motion Scanimation book, will inspire prancing, hopping, stomping, and scampering. And did we mention color?

Created by the optical genius behind the phenomenal #1 and #2 New York Times bestselling children's books, Gallop and Swing, Waddle adds touches of color to the images and integrates it into the text. That prancing pig is pink, the leaping dolphin is blue, the slithering snake yellow. The Scanimation itself is also more lifelike, as the author continues to refine his patented Scanimation process, resulting in a more fluid, realistic motion. Nothing else compares.

Waddle teaches color and movement. Its language is a joy, the rhymes inspiring, the animals full of life. And one more thing: Waddle has a surprise ending. Something else to grab the reader — literally.

Synopsis:

Created by the optical genius behind the phenomenal New York Times-bestselling children's books Gallop! and Swing!, Waddle! teaches color and movement through the unique Scanimation process — a technique that brings the animals to vivid life.
