From the Publisher

The Happy Little Yellow Box: ?A Pop-up Book of Opposites

David A. Carter. Little Simon, $12.99 (18p) ISBN 978-1-4169-4096-8

A smiley-faced yellow box assumes different roles and interacts with white chalk-drawn elements against plain black pages in this joyful exploration of opposites. Transformed into a helicopter, the yellow box rises upward in a pop-up ("High and low with the Happy Little Yellow Box"). In other spreads, the box becomes the back of a truck (horses emerge via tab to demonstrate in versus out) and peeks out of windows in two houses to emphasize near and far. Readers' smiles will match that of the box in this winning blend of minimalism, movement, and personality. Ages 3–up. (July)
