Shapes, Reshape! a minibombo book

Shapes, Reshape! a minibombo book

Author: Silvia Borando Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/07/2016

A minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. Count down from 10 to 1 in this playful interactive exploration of the shapes that make up our favourite animals. The shapes, at first, are lined up neatly in rows. But, at the turn of the page, they're mixed up, moved around and reshaped into all kinds of animals! Buzzy and clucky and scaly and sluuuurpy! Look - these green shapes reshape into scaly things. What they could be? Turn the page to reveal ... of course! 3 alligators, snip, snap and snappy! As we visit ten groups of shapes, can you try and guess what animal the shapes will become before the shapes reshape? (But, with the animals getting bigger and more ferocious each time, watch out for a rather fiery finale!)

A minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. From minibombo, the creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat comes a playful first book of shapes. Meet the red triangles, the yellow squares and the blue circles, who have a great idea for a game: together, they want to see if they can make a brand new shape! Hopping and bouncing and - bump! - sometimes colliding, they soon realize that they can be anything they want to be! A little house or a speedy car, an apple tree or a runaway train, the possibilities are endless ... they might even be out of this world! Exploring how triangles, squares and circles can be found all around us, minibombo introduce young readers to their very first shapes with playfulness, humour and in their trademark graphic style.

Now You See Me, Now You Don't a minibombo book

Author: Silvia Borando Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2016

I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. In this fun, interactive picture book from minibombo, there are loads of animals to find on each and every spread - but sometimes they can be quite tricky to spot! Have you ever tried to find a crocodile in green grass? Or a blue hippo underwater? How about four fluffy baby chicks in soft yellow sand? As we visit a different colour landscape at every turn of the page - a flowery purple meadow, a brown woodland forest - try to find the camouflaged critter. Then, with your eyes extra peeled, see if you can spot the sneaky chameleon, who can hide just about anywhere he likes...

Author: Silvia Borando Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2016

I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. In this playful, interactive introduction to ideas of perspective, you're invited to guess the seven animals that hide in the book's pages. It may sound easy but, at first, you can only see the animals right up close ... and things look so different from up close and faraway! What looks like an elephant's trunk might actually be a little birdie's tail ... and those two googly eyes? Well, when we zoom out, they don't really look like eyes at all! Another funny, wordless picture book from the innovative creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat, this stylish picture book challenges the reader to look at things from a different angle, and forces them to see things anew.

Day and night, black and white - this playful, stylish exploration of opposites is the story of two cats as different as different can be. From innovative picture book creator, Silvia Borando, comes a playful and stylish exploration of opposites. Black Cat, black from the tip of his ears to the tip of his tail, only ever goes out in the day. But White Cat, white from her whiskers to her four furry paws, only ever goes out at night.

But when they both feel the urge to explore a world beyond their own, Black Cat and White Cat go on a journey of discovery, and meet for the very first time... Visually striking, this is a celebration of adventurous spirit, new experiences, and the purr-fectly different, special someone you can share those experiences with.
