Author Notes

Hervé Tullet was born in 1958. He studied Fine Art and worked as an Art Director before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world¿s most innovative book makers. He is known in France as `The Prince of pre-school books' because he takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively.

Tullet's beautiful illustrations, interactive cut-outs, and magic lines make titles such as The Game of Light, The Game of Patterns, and The Game of Mix-Up Art, the perfect way to encourage seat-bound kids to think creatively and independently.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Tullet continues his series of interactive, gamelike board books with an exploration of primary and secondary colors, which also gives a nod to simple shapes. "Blue, Red, Yellow?" asks a Purple Square on the first spread. "Who are my parents?" The answer appears in rhyme on the next page, as the red and blue squares stretch into blobby shapes, overlapping in an embrace of sorts and forming purple where they meet ("Red and blue are the only parents for you!"). The conceit repeats for a green circle and orange triangle. The book's family angle is an adept way to model and explain color relationships. Simultaneously available: The Game in the Dark and The Game of Sculpture. Ages 1-6. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
