The Eyes Game

Hervé Tullet. Phaidon, $9.95 (14p) ISBN 978-0-7148-6689-5

This addition to Tullet’s running series that blurs the lines between book and game lets children (or the adults reading to them) pretend to be one of seven humans, animals, or monsters. Two eye-shaped crescents are die-cut through the entire book to line up with each creature’s eyes. Readers can use the book as a mask, peeping through the eyeholes while pretending to be a friendly blond girl who wants to play, a blocky ice-blue robot, or a green alien with plenty more eyes than just the two. A neat interactive diversion. Simultaneously available: The Game of Mirrors and The Ball Game. Ages 1–6. [em](Feb.) [/em]
