Reviews from all over the world
“Alternating pages of paper and acetate form a cavalcade of metamorphosing creatures in this lovely spiral-bound lesson in shape and color. What appear to be Rorschach-like abstractions become easily identifiable animals through Fischer’s clever overlapping technique. Beginners can see a demonstration of color-mixing, and there are some cleverly presented facts about wildlife, as well. —The New York Times
A striking spiral-bound book whose pages are filled with dollops of bright color. —Wall Street Journal
Here’s an excellent example of "you really have to see it for yourself" […] As much as it’s about outlines, it’s also a study in color […]" —Chicago Tribune
Clever and rewarding, this ranks with Hervé Tullet’s Press Here and Rufus Butler Seder’s Scanimation series as a book whose deceptively simple interactivity creates a reading experience that’s nothing short of magic. —Publisher’s Weekly
