Reviews

At first glance, this looks like a regular old picture book--but the second you open it up, you'll be mesmerized. Thanks to a brand-new technique called scanimation, the images on each page seem to move, as though you were watching a film instead of simply reading. Horses gallop, eagles soar--and young readers

! It's the coolest book we've seen in a while. --www.parenting.com, Daily Favs

-and-white images openly reference the motion photography of Eadweard Muybridge (an influence that Seder acknowledges on the copyright page) and they contrast with the bright palette used for the spare, reader-directed text. ( Can you soar like an eagle?/ Whoosh-whoosh-glide!/ Can you swing like a chimp?/ Swoop-swoop-slide! ) This book may encourage plenty of galloping--and jumping, running and bounding--on the part of young readers; adults will find it a marvel to look at in its own right. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

The pictures of animals, birds and fish seem to move with extraordinary naturalism, A [The animals] are mesmerizing for all ages, especially for aspiring artists who will want to know how it's done. -- New York Times Book Review
