Bob Staake's Look! A book!

Look! A Book! - Bob Staake

This is a book meant to be poured over slowly--although if you read it through cover to cover it has a lively rhyme with lots of six item lists.  The pattern is "Look! A ______! A ______! A ______! A ______! A ______! A ______!" with a little round hole next to each named item. Peaking through the hole is a picture of the item from the next page--but when you do turn the page, the item suddenly disappears into the clutter of an action-packed scene that has another poetic "find" command. Transportation? Underwater castles? Amusement parks? Haunted houses? This book has it all. Bob Staake's illustrations are colorful and done in a flat, graphic designer style with lots of humorous touches throughout.
