The Happy Little Yellow Box: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites

The Happy Little Yellow Box: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David A. Carter, the creator of the bestselling, critically-acclaimed Color Series (One Red Dot, Blue 2, 600 Black Spots, Yellow Square and White Noise) brings his modern aesthetic to a younger audience with The Happy Little Yellow Box. In this highly interactive pop-up, a friendly yellow box journeys high and low, near and far--until finally resting in the spot that is "just right." This fun, engaging book also features the first concepts of color, shape and opposites.

Review:

"A smiley-faced yellow box assumes different roles and interacts with white chalk-drawn elements against plain black pages in this joyful exploration of opposites. Transformed into a helicopter, the yellow box rises upward in a pop-up ('High and low with the Happy Little Yellow Box'). In other spreads, the box becomes the back of a truck (horses emerge via tab to demonstrate in versus out) and peeks out of windows in two houses to emphasize near and far. Readers' smiles will match that of the box in this winning blend of minimalism, movement, and personality. Ages 3 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
