A whimsical participatory introduction to shapes and colors employs ingeniously designed, perfectly die-cut and bound pages which line up exactly to unfold nine distinctly recognizable abstractly formed animal heads. This immensely enjoyable application of modern art principles showcases Ehlert's giftedness in expressing ideas in abstract shapes and vivid colors. Visual reviews of the concepts appear at the end of the compact, square book. ©1989 Cooperative Children's Book Center
