Reviews

"BOARD BOOKS 2018: WHAT WE'VE GOT IS A VERY STRONG YEAR: Has anyone else noticed that 2018 has been a shockingly strong board book year? Here's a small smattering of some of the true beauties I've run across this year .... Because life is too short not to indulge in triangular board books." —Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal/A Fuze #8 Production  

"Just when you thought it couldn't be done, there's a new twist—ahem, fold—on a classic guessing game! ...eye-catching triangular shape ...Caregivers will flip over the innovative flaps, warm animal art, and opportunities to interact with little listeners." —kirkusreviews.com

"Innovative... Mroziewicz packs uncommon exuberance, expressiveness, and design into a little triangular package." —Publishers Weekly

"This triangular board book is engagingly designed to fit in little hands. Each page turn offers a diamond-shaped double-page spread that asks youngsters to guess an animal based on the sound it makes. "Who says meow?" queries a cheerful blue spread. And here's where it gets fun: the answer is found by unfolding the pages, transforming the spread into a whiskered cat's face, with perky triangle ears. The pattern repeats to reveal 11 vividly painted animals by book's end, including a turkey, snake, pig, sheep, and peacock. Sturdily constructed, this clever book will withstand grabbing and multiple reading sessions." —Julia Smith, Booklist
