A mushroom I seem–and oh, so mild / But an OGRE I am–and oh, so wild! Beware of what you think you see; in this innovative book, you can’t trust your eyes. Every page contains a moving piece, and when you spin it around, the world turns topsy-turvy. Suddenly, innocent objects–like a boat, tree, and sandwich–transform into funny, colorful monsters. Children will have tons of fun discovering what lurks beneath Agnese Baruzzi’s delightful drawings.
Agnese Baruzzi has written and illustrated more than 40 children’s books that have been published in Italy, the UK, Japan, Portugal, the US, France, and South Korea.
