I’m a big fan of books that interact with the reader. This clever picture book by Adam Lehrhaupt & Matthew Forsythe is talking to you right from the front cover, through the endpapers, and onwards with its stark warnings about what will happen if you dare turn its pages.
What happens? Monkey-filled mayhem, that’s what! The resulting chaos is beautifully realised in Forsythe’s humour-filled and gorgeously painted interiors. And that’s just the beginning. Toucans and alligators add to the mix and it’s up to the reader fix things!
Warning: Do Not Open This Book! is full of energy and fun.
