About the Author:

Robert Crowther is the creator Ships, Trains, and Flight as well as numerous other pop-up books, including COLORS, OPPOSITES, and SHAPES. He lives in Norfolk, England.

From Booklist:

There’s always just a little more to see in this infinitely interesting book that tells so much about everyday objects found around the house. With each spread focusing on a particular room, readers open the first page and the kitchen pops up. Open the stove door, and the date of the first oven is there. Next comes the living room, and there’s information about the board games on the floor and the phone on the wall. So it goes, on to the bathroom, bedroom, and garage. Between its dollhouse-like appeal and its passel of factoids, this is a book that will keep kids looking for more. Grades 3-5. --Ilene Cooper
