Animal friends

ONE SPOTTED GIRAFFE by Petr Horacek is subtitled A POP UP COUNTING BOOK (Candlewick Press 2012). As readers lift the flap on the right side of the double page spread, up pops an animal in the shape of the number. On the facing left hand piece of the double page spread are the appropriate number of animals. Thus, a panda is transformed into a pop up number 8 while 8 pandas cavort. Nice, simple concept book with the bonus of the pop up. <261>

PIP AND POSY: THE SCARY MONSTER (Nosy Crow 2012) introduces readers to Pip and his friend Posy. It is a dreary day, and Posy decides to do some baking. Before long, she sees a monster staring into her window. But, it is only Pip, of course. The two enjoy a lovely time each pretending to be a scary monster. <262>
