Tullet (Press Here; Mix It Up!) develops his innovative, interact-with-the-book project still further as readers travel through the book with a yellow dot. "So, will you take me along? It's easy: Just follow the line with your finger," says the dot. Readers trace Tullet's spidery, squiggly black scrawl across the pages: "Wow! That's really way up high... and really way down low!" the dot exclaims as the ink line arches, then dives. Tullet, always a fountain of new ideas, sends the line swirling and creates a carousel of dots to circle. There's a tunnel for the dot to go through and a page full of menacing splotches ("I really don't like this page," the dot says anxiously). Most of the interactions are hits—readers help the dot vault over a red blob, at which point it lands, the dot claims, in the reader's hair—with a couple misses mixed in (tucked deep within the book's gutter, the dot is nearly unfindable on a hide-and-seek page). Regardless, Franceschelli provides another fine translation, and Tullet's fans will rush to add this to their collection. Ages 3–5. (Mar.)
