About the Author

Herve Tullet was born in 1958. After completing his studies in Visual Arts and Fine Arts, he held the position of Artistic Director for ten years (1981-1992). He then worked in communication and advertising. In 1990, he produced his first illustrations for the French press and abroad (Elle, Le Monde, Liberation, Enfants Magazine, etc.) and in 1994 published his first children's book. Since then he's devoted himself to illustrating and painting. A great lover of children's literature, he is father to two young sons and one daughter, who never fail to inspire him.

Reviews

Tullet's brilliant creation proves that books need not lose out to electronic wizardry; his colorful dots perform every bit as engagingly as any on the screen of an iPad. "Ready?" the voiceover-style narration asks on the first page; it shows a yellow dot on a plain white background. "Press here and turn the page," it instructs. When the page is turned, there's a second yellow dot beside the first one. "Great!" it says. "Now press the yellow dot again." A third yellow dot appears beside the first two. "Perfect," the narrator continues. "Rub the dot on the left... gently." On the next page, voila!-that dot is now red. "Well done!" the book congratulates. The fun continues as the dots proliferate, travel around the page, grow and shrink in response to commands to clap, shake, or tilt the book, etc. The joy is in the tacit agreement between artist and reader that what's happening is magic. Shh! Don't tell. All ages. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Readers press the yellow dot on the cover, then follow instructions-shaking, tilting, and more-to magically make the dots change. Wordless, a memorable and creative experience allows readers to say, "Let's play it again!" (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
