Raincoast Books - Mix It Up!
The New York Times bestselling book, a brilliant companion to the mega-selling classic Press Here, is now gently compressed into a toddler-friendly board book.
With the graphic intensity of Eric Carle, the interactive fun of Poke-a-Dot books, and the humor of The Day the Crayons Quit but with a vision all his own, Herve Tullet invites readers to MIX IT UP in a dazzling adventure of color and tones, filled with magic and wonder.
Follow the artist's simple instructions, and suddenly colors appear . . . mix . . . splatter . . . and vanish in a vivid world powered only by the reader's imagination. The result is not only enchantment and giggles, but a real and deeper understanding of colors brought by a true master of his craft.
Just as in his mega-selling classic Press Here, Tullet sets readers on an extraordinary journey of color, motion, and interactivity. Mix It Up! is the perfect gift book for parents and kids to cherish and read again and again, as well as an invaluable teaching tool for preschool and kindergarten classrooms.
