Description
What am I?
I lived a long, long time ago.
I had round eyes...
lots of sharp teeth...

This new concept book from Caldecott Honor illustrator Suse MacDonald is sure to entertain children. As readers turn the brightly colored, die cut pages, shapes on each page come together to reveal a creature from long ago. Page by page, MacDonald's bright, cut-paper, collage-style artwork transforms circles into eyes and triangles into scales until a familiar creature is revealed, with the aid of a large fold-out page, on the final spread.

This 9 X 9 jacketed hardcover has die-cut cardstock pages.
