Here you'll find a magic book
Where all's not what it seems.
For when you turn each object round
PRESTO CHANGE-O
The unexpected will be seen.


See the raccoon hiding in a magic cauldron? The owl pretending to be a clock? The lion masquerading as a flower? A rabbit hiding in a hot-air balloon? Kids will love working magic with just a few simple turns—and a few rhyming verses—that transform everyday objects into familiar creatures. Simple manipulations for little hands make this a literal page turner.

About the Author:

Édouard Manceau dedicated himself to making children's books after graduating art school in France. His illustrations are a combination of drawing, painting, photography, and collage. He lives in Toulouse, France.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—This large board book indulges the imagination by using simple shapes and reader manipulation to transform each illustration into something else entirely-a hot-air balloon becomes a rabbit, and 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 a pot that turns into a raccoon, as it offers slightly more color and shape variation than the other transformations. The bold, graphic style of the illustrations works well to help readers focus on the task at hand while also bringing a decidedly minimalistic ascetic to the text when paired together. There does seem to be something lost in translation in the text. There is some surprisingly difficult vocabulary for a book that is sure to be promoted to the youngest of readers (or nonreaders). Consider purchasing this title as a supplemental material for its promotion of motor skills and shape recognition.—Beth Dobson, Weatherly Heights Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
