Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your head will spin when you look at this amazing book. Each page has a unique paper-engineering element that allows you to flip, spin, and even turn the picture to see something completely different. Is that a horse peeking his head above the fence? Turn the disc and spin-?it's a squirrel! Is that a bird flying in the sky? Pull the tab and flip-?it's a fish! Kids and parents alike will be amazed by these optical illusions. Be prepared to flip over this book!

Review:

"Digitally rendered cartoon animals change into other animals via wheels, pull-tabs, and pop-ups. Turning a wheel rotates a cow's head until it resembles an owl. A butterscotch-colored frog on a lily-pad flips up to become a mouse peering over tall grass ('Frog finds a pond/ to cool his feet./ What a great place/ to beat the heat./ Moose walks down/ to take a sip./ Pull the tab/ to see them flip!'). And a die-cut monkey's head flips over to turn into a duck on the following spread. It's a simple concept, well-executed, and readers should be tickled by the trompe-l'oeil effect. Ages 3 — up."
