600 Black Spots by David A. Carter

600 Black SpotsI am often awed by the wonderful, acrobatic things done with paper in pop-up books, but this pop-up book is worth mentioning because it is SO DIFFERENT. I think it might really be meant for adults, but it is fascinating for kids as well. Black spots jump out at you as you turn the pages, creating a sort of modern work of art in paper. One page reads “Tipsy tassels teeter and 78 Black Spots”, and the reader pulls the tabs to sway the tall tower of spots. Another favorite of mine reads “Fauve kaboom and 258 Black Spots” with fingers of spots sprouting out from the page. This book is SURPRISING to say the least — and is a must see!
