Is it a Bird? A Plane? No, it’s A Book by Bob Staake!

Spread the love

Today’s guest reviewers are editor Carolyn Graham’s husband Steve and son, Jack.

lookabookMy son Jack (6) and I sat down to a new book last night and thought we would share it with you. It’s called Look! A Book!: A Zany Seek-and-Find Adventure by Bob Staake. It was just published by Little, Brown and it’s $15.99. More about Bob at http://www.bobstaake.com/

Jack:
Well this book is quite good. It’s fun and you have to look for things. It’s about finding things. Each page shows you something peeking through holes in the pages and you have to find things in the drawings.

Dad:
Bob Staake’s art work is genius. I loved this book. He had me at the cover. With spaceships and a giant dinosaur, a swinging ape, a pirate, a guy in a jetpack and a tiger on a pedal powered helicopter, how could it miss?

Jack:
What was my favorite drawing? It’s tough to choose, but I like the dinosaur and I like the donkey in the hot tub. I pretty much like everything.

Dad:
Me too. We spent a long time on each page, marveling at the crazy and imaginative detail. There are tons of great little jokes and cool ideas packed into every huge two-page drawing.

Jack:
There is very little typing.

Yeah, but what’s there is perfect. It’s got just enough great rhyming story to keep you moving through the book.

Jack:
I think it’s very funny at the end because a policeman says “No No No Stop!” It’s not the end of the book.

Dad:
And at the end there is a whole page of cool hidden items that you can go back through the book to look for, like 3 pigs and 5 doughnuts. (So that’s why the Abraham Lincoln riding on the back of a jetliner on page 7 was holding a doughnut!)

Jack:
We found lots of hammers. I love the robots they draw.

Dad:
I think we’ll keep going back to this one pretty often.

Jack:
I recommend that you should have this book. It’s a good book and fun to read with your Dad or Mom.
