Starred Review. Tullet's brilliant creation proves that books need not lose out to electronic wizardry; his
colorful dots perform every bit as engagingly as any on the screen of an iPad. "Ready?" the voiceover-style narration
asks on the first page; it shows a yellow dot on a plain white background. "Press here and turn the page," it instructs.
When the page is turned, there's a second yellow dot beside the first one. "Great!" it says. "Now press the yellow dot
again." A third yellow dot appears beside the first two. "Perfect," the narrator continues. "Rub the dot on the left...
gently." On the next page, voila!—that dot is now red. "Well done!" the book congratulates. The fun continues as the
dots proliferate, travel around the page, grow and shrink in response to commands to clap, shake, or tilt the book, etc.
The joy is in the tacit agreement between artist and reader that what's happening is magic. Shh! Don't tell. All ages.

""Press Here" is a tour de force of imagination and playfulness that belongs on every family bookshelf" -
Seattle Times

"An innovative, interactive work that gets kids to play with the physical form of the book."--Time Magazine, 100 Best
Children's Books of All Time

Irresistible."--Shelf Awareness

"Entertaining and intriguing." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Deceptively simple, and endlessly entertaining "
-Kepler's Books and Magazines, Camino Real Menlo Park, CA

"Compared to the squawking sounds and flashing lights of many toys, Tullet's simplicity is a breath of fresh
air....Children and parents keen to explore technological interactivity will delight in recalling the infinite
possibilities of the picture book."--Kirkus Review, Starred Review

"At the close of this reading experience, you'll hear the ultimate praise: 'Read it AGAIN!' Hooray for the book!" -Kids
Brain blog

"This book is 100% magic, the potent kind that makes an adult ignore cranky knees curled awkwardly on the floor to read
(and press and rub and tap.) right to the very end." -Madison Public Library

"The iPad generation expects interactive. But books can play too...It's so much fun to pretend that things are actually
changing on command. No computer needed! Kids (and adults) are delighted by their perceived power." -Susan Faust, The
San Francisco Chronicle
