Staff Pick

You can tell right from the sliding dust jacket that this is going to be a unique and interactive experience. Messenger's book invites the reader to imagine a world just slightly tilted from the norm, by pairing highly detailed color drawings with simple questions like, "Imagine a bicycle with square wheels." Then use the multiple lift-the-flaps, pull-out centerfolds, and spinning paper discs to create crazy combinations of animal and people. As if that weren't enough, each page also has mathematical shape puzzles to further challenge your mind.

Publisher Comments:

Inspiring, intriguing, endlessly entertaining — Norman Messenger's interactive book allows us to step out of our everyday lives, shed our preconceptions, and experience a little magic.

IMAGINE . . . a ladder without steps, a clock without hands, a racket without strings, a kiss without a mouth. Imagine a world where the hills have faces and wherever you went, you'd have someone to talk to. Imagine flipping a series of flaps to form fantastical creatures or turning a wheel to fit the top of one face on the bottom of another. Imagine that Norman Messenger's quirky, humorous suggestions, ingenious visual puzzles, and beautifully crafted illustrations will open your eyes and mind and reveal that — with a little imagination — the world can become a different and mysterious place, where anything is possible.
