Look! A Book!

By Bob Staake (Hardcover Book, 2011)
Look! A book! A hook! A cowboy cook!
Weird and kooky things that go!
Some go fast and some go slow!

Can you find the squawking crow?

Go on a crazy seek-and-find adventure in this new picture book from award-winning artist Bob Staake. Die-cuts on every page draw readers into each themed scene and invite them to find the items hidden within the elaborately detailed spreads. From underwater worlds, to haunted houses and tree-top towns, there are endless details for readers to search for and discover. This inventive picture book format will have kids hooked from the very first die-cut page all the way through to the end where a gate-fold finale challenges them to go back for yet another look and even more surprises.

Bob is best-known and widely celebrated for his picture books and this visual feast is some of his most exciting and creative work to date!
