The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book: Games! Puzzles! Mazes! And More!
Mike Lowery. Workman, $14.95 paper (112p) ISBN 978-0-7611-8718-9
With bold, goofy artwork, a plethora of activities, and more than 400 stickers, this jam-packed offering from Lowery (the Doodle Adventure series) lives up to its name. Opportunities for creativity abound: “Design an ugly sweater for this fox,” Lowery invites on one spread. Elsewhere, readers can draw new hairstyles in a “Monster Hair Salon” and count the number of gnomes in a “super old library.” Punch-out pieces broaden the range of activities: readers can make an alien-themed flip book, finger puppets, and a mask. Jokes and wordplay accompany the cast of loveable, dopey, and deadpan characters, and a detachable poster makes this exhilarating interactive book even more multidimensional. Ages 6–11.
