The Book with a Hole
by Herve Tullet


Overview -

"The Book with a Hole" blasts a hole through the middle of the book itself. Sometimes the hole is an eye the reader can look through; sometimes it is a mouth and the reader's fingers make the teeth! The next minute it is a plate (with food drawn by the reader on a sheet of paper behind the book), an obstacle to jump across, or a saucepan.  Read more...

As the title suggests, this oversize book has a die-cut hole—a large semicircle is cut out of the book's spine, which becomes a full circle in the center of the book when opened, serving different interactive functions in a series of spare b&w scenes. "Who's the king of the castle?" Tullet asks on one spread (the hole takes the place of the royal's head, so kids can "crown" themselves). In another spread, the hole is in the center of a traffic roundabout, and Tullet suggests placing a sculpture in the center. Some spreads offer explicit instructions ("Crumple up a sheet of paper, make a ball, and play basketball"), and many allow for free, creative expression ("What idea will you have next?"). As with his recent Press Here, Tullet's simple innovation allows readers to become active participants in the experience of reading. Ages 3–8. (May)
