Written and illustrated by Jérémie Fischer Published by Flying Eye Books
A fun and wild new book from Flying Eye Books; WILD ABOUT SHAPES is the latest release from Jérémie Fischer, an illustrator and professional screen-printing technician.
As you can tell from the title, this book is all about shapes, shapes that turn into animals. This book has an almost magical quality as animals appear within pages of overlapping colour and alternating pages of printed acetate. There’s not many words within this book but on each page spread, there’s either a question "What can you see?" or direction "Look closer…", or "look up in the air" but then as you explore the book you’re on an exploration of the animal kingdom. Animals such as an elephant, giraffe, crocodile and even a mouse will appear among many more.
This is a fun book which has a colourful narrative that will engage young readers to explore the shapes and talk about what they can see. It’s beautifully crafted and cleverly designed - You can read more about Jérémie Fischeron here, where he includes shots of how he plans out the shapes and what they will form.
The recommended age for this book is from 3 to 5 years of age but this book will definitely appeal to adults and children alike. You’ll enjoy exploring these pages with eager young minds to see what animals will reveal themselves next.
