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.

"This brilliantly simple amusement wins its spot (in a manner of speaking, for it consists almost entirely of colorful
spots on glossy white backgrounds) for the sheer delight it gives. The book, we said earlier this year, 'is like a cross
between a high-concept picture book and an iPhone, only more charming.'" - Wall Street Journal/Best Books of 2011
