A playfully deceptive, joyously interactive board book for young readers aged 2-4 from the award-winning author and illustrator Jean Jullien – following in the footsteps of his global bestseller and much loved This Is Not A Book

Is this a suitcase? A bed? An elephant? Each spread in this engaging board book is actually something else entirely, sparking imaginations and encouraging the storytellers in readers of all ages. Turn the page and find a foldable shirt. Then turn the book to discover a flip phone that you can open, close, and  “dial”  to call your friends and family! This cleverly conceived board book with fold-out pages prompts children to think creatively about – and play creatively with – other objects in their daily lives. Perfectly designed for young readers aged 2-4.
