The Book with a Hole by Herve Tullet


The Book with a Hole by Herve Tullet

Each new title from Herve Tullet invites children to travel further into an intensely creative interaction with the book itself. Previously Imagine , The Scribble Book and The Colouring Book brought a whole new sense of anarchic fun to children's activity titles. Now The Book with a Hole blasts a hole through the middle of the book itself. Sometimes the Hole is an eye the reader can look through, sometimes it is a mouth and the reader's fingers make the teeth! The next minute it is a plate (with food drawn by the reader on a sheet of paper behind the book), an obstacle to jump across or a saucepan. It's crazy! It's a Book with a Hole! Packed full of Tullet's zany drawings and inventive ideas, this is bound to enchant children of all ages.
