Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Artist extraordinaire, winner of the Caldecott Medal and three Caldecott Honors, Paul O. Zelinsky has created his first moving-parts book since the best-selling Wheels on the Bus-and it's a beauty.

To the verses of "This Old Man," he has constructed an ingenious visual narrative. A young boy goes outside with his dog and skateboard. Along the way, children can push tabs, turn wheels, or lift flaps to see a different-but always engaging-old man appear out of hiding and play Knick-Knack, holding a numeral. By similarly clever mechanics, each old man's dog chases a bone, and the men roll home.

A paper-engineering extravaganza at the end shows us where everyone has been heading and what playing Knick-Knack really means. With more moving parts than in his earlier book and fabulously appealing characters, this takes the interactive book to a new level.

Review:

"...This well-imagined, cleverly constructed book will keep children busy for hours, examining the intricate workings and humming the familiar nursery rhyme-counting song...." Booklist

Synopsis:

A well-known nonsense verse becomes the basis for a wacky adventure in the hands of genius illustrator Paul O. Zelinsky. As a boy and his dog journey outside, a band of counting old men pops up - literally! - to play Knick-Knack according to the famous song. Brand-new cover art brings this interactive classic to a new generation of young readers. And with tabs to pull, flaps to lift, and wheels to spin, kids will be singing the tune of this unforgettable book all the way home.

Synopsis:
