Synopses & Reviews
A crossing guard newt!
Once AGAIN a seek-and-find,
MORE images of every kind!
From a music note to a teeny red boat, a blue kangaroo to a robot or two, there are endless things to discover in this zany follow-up to Look! A Book! from award-winning artist Bob Staake. Die cuts on the cover and every spread reveal hidden treasures in each vast landscape, from a zoo gone wild to an out-of-this-world moon base to a crazy art museum, and more, providing hours of entertainment to readers young and old.
"An all-you-can-eat buffet of images greet readers in Staake's interactive seek-and-find book, a companion to Look! A Book! (2010). Die-cut circles provide sneak peeks of objects on the preceding and following pages ('Look! A chair! A pear! A miniature bear! A skunk! A trunk! A UFO punk!'), connecting wildly diverse spreads that visit urban, spooky, and even extraterrestrial settings. The happily hectic scenes brim with irreverent details. A zoo ('areful, or you'll step on poo!/ Quick! Now find the crab fondue!') features a ghost, robot, and a monster on a leash who join a tiger, in addition to the usual animal suspects, while modern art masterpieces creep out of their frames at a museum. Staake's enthusiastic verse is contagious in a book that promises hours of offbeat entertainment. All ages. Agent: Gillian MacKenzie, the Gillian MacKenzie Agency."
