White Noise: A Pop-Up Book for Children of All Ages

David A. Carter, Author, David A. Carter, Illustrator . Little Simon $22.99 (20p) ISBN 978-1-4169-4094-4

In Carter's final “color” book (after One Red Dot , Yellow Square , and others), abstract paper pop-up sculptures form a symphony of white noise—clicks, clacks, and the like—as they expand. Gently batting “a tangle of bits and pieces” that hang by string produces “tinkling white noise,” while on another page, readers can drag their fingers along fibrous, crenellated wings to make a strumming sound. References to sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and artist Bruno Munari, among others, will be lost on young readers, but the expressive, intricate shapes, blistering primary color palette, and subtle audio dimension are entrancing. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
