9781929927241: The Big White Book with (almost) Nothing In It

"Hello, what's this?" I hear you say,

"Now hang on just a minute,

I can't see any pictures here,

This book's got NOTHING in it!"

An empty book? With blank pages? Really? How can that be? But wait! Here's a flap to lift and another flap and another. Hiding under each flap or squeezing between, over, and under the pages or chasing each other on a turning wheel or even cutting corners with a pair of pop-up scissors is a most engaging cast of child-friendly characters. Complete with a handful of bookworms and a sweet and scruffy dog, this book proves that everything is not always as it seems!

Review:

Almost nothing? With a title like this, there's just got to be something in this book--and kids, of course, will wise up to that pretty quickly. What follows are dozens of colorful little people suited up in wacky outfits and trying desperately to hide anywhere they can--behind foldup flaps, on spinning wheels, hanging on the creases, and all along the seams in between pages. Whether they're round and fat or tall and thin, these pop-up and pop-out elves seem to be having all sorts of fun wreaking havoc with their home, flying through the air or spinning out on roller skates: "Pages can be boring: Too straight and square and flat. So sometimes we'll go SNIP! And make them wiggly--just like that!"

This book's secrets won't stay secret long, but The Big White Book should provide an entertaining hunt at least the first few times through. (Baby to preschool) --Paul Hughes
