    1. This book will be both a big hit and possibly a slight miss for storytimes. Based off of the idea that not everything is what it seems, this book features riddle-esque text on one page, with a changeable illustration on the other. What do I mean by changeable illustrations? Well, they start out as one thing, then you move some pieces (think lift-the-flap without actually lifting) and it changes into another. This book is amazing for one-on-one sharing, but some of the illustrations are a bit cum [...]

    2. ARC via School Library Journal (for review)Translated from the original French, this large board book indulges the imagination of all by using simple shapes and reader manipulation to transform each illustration into something else entirely – a hot-air balloon becomes a rabbit or a rocket turns into a penguin. Emerging readers can enjoy the book without hearing the accompanying text and simply look for the pictures or bolded words to make the changes. The most visually engaging of these is the [...]

    3. This little book lets the young reader get handsy with the book. It has the premise that the pictures in the books can be changed into becoming animals by moving the cards on the individual pages. This invites a tactile experience that I think is usually exclusive to reading a physical book. The colours are bright and the layout of the novel allows the reader to make mistakes and redo their changing. The text is rather dense and is probably more suited for being read out loud by the adult for th [...]

    4. Eight different illustrations consisting of bright colors and simple shapes turn into something else entirely when readers manipulate the various parts of the illustration. For instance, a top hat flips to reveal a perky red bird, and a bowl filled with green veggies turns down to become a turtle. Some of the shapes are harder to move into place than others, making this a good one to share one on one and probably not with a whole class. It's fun to read, though, since it encourages creativity an [...]

    5. The idea was cool, but in practice it didn't work too well. It wouldn't be a good storytime book as it took way too long to move all the pieces on each page. Also, I don't think they'll last long. I had trouble with a few of them, too, trying to figure out how to place all the parts in order to make the animal described.

    6. There are a lot of really cool books with moving parts out there, most of which I would not let a young child kid handle solo. This one however, should probably not be handled by anyone because I was being very careful and broke two of the pieces off. So basically, pretty neat to look at but falls apart within 2 seconds.

    7. This is a great book to use to encourage the concept of "play" with a child. There is a significant amount of text on each page, but it isn't necessary if you just manipulate the images from one to another. Good for young ones!

    8. I liked how the dual images complemented each other. The pieces are a little tricky to move, but little ones should be developing their fine motor skills and this book may help them with that. I'm curious how long this will last in the library with the moving pieces.

    9. This book is amazing - wonderful for young children - my 2, 4, and 6 year olds love it. Sparks the imagination by transforming one object into another with a few simple turns/twists - a clock changes into an owl, a bubbling kettle becomes a raccoon, etc. Wonderfully creative and fresh.

    10. Love the simple way objects transform to animals by just changing a few elements. I worry the paper pieces won't hold up to much wear and tear. My biggest criticism is the design of the text elements -- too blocky and large. Not enough visual interplay between words and illustrations.

    11. Simple objects transform to animals by changing a few elements. Delightful fun but unlikely to stay intact long in library circulation.

    12. Note the idiot-proof instructions in the back. They'll make your life easier, trust me. Buy this title from Powell's Books.
