From one of the most acclaimed and dynamic picture book makers of his time comes a book that tests the very meaning of a picture book story, plays havoc with formal type and design and speaks directly to its readers! This is a new picture book from Herve Tullet! How exciting. Open it up - see what's inside! Hello! There's lots of characters. And they're looking right at YOU. They seem to be a bit surprised...Hmmm, maybe they're not quite ready? (The drawing's a bit messy, too. It looks like this illustrator has some more work to do.) Let's read on and see. Uh-oh - it seems the characters don't actually know what to DO! Hang on...there's not even a STORY because - guess what?! - this book isn't FINISHED! But while you're here (and because you probably DO want a story, right?) they're going to try and find one for you. And they might just need the help of a certain author...Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level and encourages young children to interact with the book form, teaching them, in the process, to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. This is a book full of funny, original ideas: a story within a story complete with photos of Herve Tullet himself talking to the characters. Un livre won the Sorcieres prize in 2010, and was a worldwide bestseller, published in 27 languages.
