Originally published by Italy’s Minibombo, this wordless picture book is both a playful exploration of perspective and a goofily amusing animal guessing game.

Synopsis

From up close and far away, things can look so different. Can you guess what animals you’re looking at as they zoom in, then zoom back out?

No words are needed in this striking and colorful exploration of animal shapes. Bold graphic forms create a playful exercise in visual perception. At first glance, that green bump might be a grassy hill. But we’re too close to be sure. Step back (turn the page) to see a little more. Now there are two green loopy humps. What could it be? Turn one more page to reveal — of course, the squiggles of a snake! Preschoolers will see animals in a new way when they look from both near and far.
