Discover how this celebrated illustrator turns everyday objects inside out in marvelously zany ways in his latest lift-the-flap board book.
A toaster, a refrigerator, a sink, a bed, a car. Most kids can recognize these and other things that are part of their everyday lives. Leave it to Tom Schamp to imagine a different way of seeing them. As kids pore over these brightly colored and highly detailed pictures they’ll be delighted to discover a monkey on a surfboard and an elephant in a bowler hat—all inhabiting the same shapes they recognize in their homes. Each whimsical illustration offers a chance to explore, discuss, and giggle at the unexpected. Every page will encourage kids to think creatively and differently about the world around them and the possibilities that lie hidden in the things we see every day.
Tom Schamp’s illustrations for adults and children have appeared in numerous periodicals and newspapers. He is the author of more than 30 children’s books. Schamp lives in Brussels, Belgium.
