Beautiful Oops!

Product Description

Imported from USA

Review
------

A pleasingly tactile exploration of the possibilities inherent in mistakes. "A torn piece of paper... is just the
beginning!" Spills, folded paper, drips of paint, smudges and smears—they "all can make magic appear." An increasingly
complex series of scenarios celebrates random accidents, encouraging artistic experimentation rather than
discouragement. The folded-over paper can be a penguin's head; a torn piece of newsprint can turn into a smiling dog
with a little application of paint; a hot-chocolate stain can become a bog for a frog. Thanks to a telescoping pop-up, a
hole is filled with nearly limitless possibilities. The interactive elements work beautifully with the photo-collaged
"mistakes," never overwhelming the intent with showiness. Saltzberg's trademark cartoon animals provide a sweetly
childlike counterpoint to the artful scribbles and smears of gloppy paint. A festive invitation to creative liberation.

“Clumsy kids will appreciate Barney Saltzberg’s imaginative book, which shows how mistakes (spills, tears, stains) can
turn into something wonderful.” - Parents Magazine
