Herve Tullet was born in 1958. After studying Fine Art, he worked as an Art Director before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world's most innovative book makers. Known in France as "The Prince of pre-school books", Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. He is the father of two boys and a girl, who never fail to inspire him.From Booklist:
Straight lines, curvy lines, thick lines, thin lines, blobs, circles, cutouts—put them all together and one has the latest in Tullet’s growing repertoire of interactive books (Press Here, 2011). With a few exceptions that divide the book into manageable sections, the pages are all cut in half horizontally to allow for colorful, abstract mixing and matching. For example, with a flip of a half page, what was a page filled with squiggly lines morphs into a half page of squiggly lines joining a half page of straight lines. Or, a section with rectangular cutouts becomes a dual layer of intricate die-cut lattice designs. The possibilities of patterns and color combinations, all of which are ineffably captivating, seem endless. They should also serve to inspire artists in need of a freewheeling jolt. Art teachers should find this invaluable, though be aware that the spiral wire binding may not last forever, and though the pasteboard is substantial, it too could suffer from too much affection—which it is likely to get. Preschool-Grade 1. --J. B. Petty
