This quick read will catch the attention of your readers as soon as they get to the end…. when they'll turn the book over and read it again, this time from a different perspective.
From Kirkus Review: Do not be deceived by the simple-looking board format: This is not for babies. Rather, it challenges children who have accepted the initial premise with developmentally appropriate narcissism to regard the world from the opposite perspective. Gently mind-bending, this playful Mexican import, packaged in a slipcase, will get readers thinking. (Novelty. 3-7) Copyright Kirkus 2009
Huddled under Annaliese’s bedcovers, Throckmorton traveled in his mind back to those long-ago and faraway nights when Olivia made up silly little rhymes that she sang until he and Baby Annaliese fell to sleep:
Sock monkey, Throck-monkey, rock-around-the-clock monkey…
And he dreamed he was dancing beneath a crystal chandelier brimming with light.
Throck-monkey, sock monkey, hockey-stick-and puck-monkey…
And he saw himself skating down a silver river of sparkling ice.
Sock monkey, Throck-monkey, lobster-in-the-pot monkey…
And he became as strong as fishermen who draw crusty-shelled creatures out of the sea.
