Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It's OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes! A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn't ruin a drawing--not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don't be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator.

Barney Saltzberg, the effervescent spirit behind Good Egg, offers a one-of-a-kind interactive book that shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion "telescope"--each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.

The smudge becomes the face of a bunny, a crumpled ball of paper turns into a lamb's fleecy coat--celebrate the oops in life. 

Review:

"A celebration of creative thinking, Saltzberg's small-format book encourages readers to view mistakes not as failures but opportunities. To wit, 'A torn piece of paper...' (the cardboard page is actually torn) 'is just the beginning': the beginning of a smile for an alligator. Various spills and blobs are transformed into animals, a crumpled piece of paper becomes wool for a sheep, and in the book's standout scene, a panel with a hole in the center telescopes outward, accordion-style, to reveal a tiny creature way at the bottom. Inspirational without being saccharine, this has gifty crossover potential. Ages 3 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Saltzberg ("Good Egg") offers a one-of-a-kind interactive book that shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. Pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, and smudges demonstrate the magical transformation from blunder to wonder. Full color.

Synopsis:

Inside This Book is a tribute to self-publishing in its most pure and endearing form. Three siblings create three books of their own using blank paper that they bind together (in descending sizes to match birth order). One siblingandrsquo;s work inspires the next, and so on, with each bookandrsquo;s text and art mirroring the distinct interests and abilities of its creator. Upon completion of their works, the siblings put one book inside the other, creating a new book to be read and shared by all!
