Knopf Books for Young Readers, Hardcover, 9780394871424, 24pp.
Publication Date: January 13, 2004
A reissue of the first pop-up book ever published by Knopf, Peekaboo! combines a simple concept, charming illustrations, and basic mechanical engineering to create a pop-up book featuring baby’s favorite game—Peekaboo, I See You!.
The question “Where’s Mommy?” begins this simple and completely engaging pop-up book. Turn the page, and Mommy pops up from under the covers, shouting “Peekaboo!” Daddy joins in the fun when he pops up from behind his newspaper. A jack-in-the-box, the family dog, and a three-dimensional surprise pop up in this adorable and universally favorite baby game!
Unavailable for several years, Peekaboo! is a perfect first pop-up book for babies.
Award-winning illustrator Jean Claverie studied at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon and at the Ecole d'Arts Decoratifs of Geneve. He lives in France with his wife Michelle Nikly, a writer and illustrator.
“A baby’s favorite game is the inspiration for this pop-up book, which encourages new talkers to join in and “read” and even initiate their own games of peekaboo. The pop-ups are especially well designed for little hands inclined to help.”—Parents’ Choice
