Overview

How do you make the ordinary extraordinary? With a little bit of oomph An utterly inspiring and playful new book on creativity from Barney Saltzberg, author of Beautiful Oops , A Little Bit of Oomph teaches the invaluable lesson of throwing your heart into whatever you're doing and trying just a little bit harder-- because with a little extra effort and a lot of oomph, you can make anything beautiful.

With a little bit of oomph you can help a sprinkle of seeds--lift flap--become a magical, three-dimensional bouquet of flowers. With a little bit of oomph, small notions--like a goldfish in a little bowl--open out to big oceans (just look through the peephole ). Oomph can transform a dog's tail into a funny tale (there's a miniature book involved). Oomph changes curiosity into discovery, daydreams into playthings, your singing into others' dancing.

A triumph of imagination, vibrant, colorful art, and paper engineering, A Little Bit of Oomph is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, spinning circles and gatefolds--and, underlying every page, Barney's timeless message that creativity is for everyone. Just add a little bit of oomph.

Saltzberg builds on the inspirational advice of Beautiful Oops! in a companion book that is encouraging without being cloying. A plain-Jane opening spread that reads “Make something ordinary” reveals its hidden potential when readers lift a flap that transforms the word “ordinary” into “extraordinary,” with bright colored lettering and cartoons driving the point home. On what’s perhaps the cleverest spread, readers lift a small fishbowl to reveal a peephole; peeking through the tiny circle reveals a whale happily swimming through a wide sea (“Watch small notions... become big oceans”). Throughout, Saltzberg’s enthusiastic mixed-media paintings are in and of themselves a testament to the fertile possibilities that accompany an open mind. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
