In the pages of this book nothing is what it seems: an elephant trunk, deer antlers, and a kangaroo pouch become unexpected and curious objects. Look carefully and you’ll see a shower, a clothes hanger, and a shopping cart. You just have to look at things from a different point of view, and use a little bit of imagination.

Parents will love introducing their little ones to Vasquez’s illustrated animals, and sharing the wonderful things make-believe can do.

Paula Vásquez, an avowed artist from childhood, studied graphic design at the Universidad Católica de Chile, and honed her illustration skills with a post-graduate diploma in Finis Terrae University. She continued her studies at EINA Escola de Disseny i Art in Barcelona, Spain. She currently lives in Santiago de Chile writing and illustrating children’s picture books.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—This simple and silly title introduces a group of animals in clever and unusual ways. It opens, "This is not a rooster," and with the turn of a page, explains, "It is an alarm clock," as the bird throws back his head with a loud "cock-a-doodle-do!" An elephant is revealed to be a shower, a kangaroo subs as a shopping cart, and a deer is a clothes hanger. The illustrations are whimsical, cheerful, and very colorful, and the book lends itself to different interpretations. VERDICT Pair with Jan Thomas's A Birthday for Cow and Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Pig a Party for a hilarious and interactive birthday or celebration storytime, or Antoinette Portis's Not a Box for an imagination storytime. A suitable purchase for most libraries.—Shana Morales, Windsor Public Library, CT

Review:

"Invite your imagination out to play with Not What It Seems, from Paula Vásquez, a clever lesson in embracing possibilities and recognizing potential where a rooster is not just a rooster---it might be an alarm clock. Playful illustrations encourage audiences to view the everyday in an extraordinary way as a kaleidoscope of animals from peacocks to anteaters to kangaroos transforms into an amusing variety of practical devices, all with a little thought and creativity." (Foreword Review 2017-01-12)
