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.
Suse MacDonald published her first book, "Alphabatics", for Simon & Schuster in 1986. This book won a Caldecott Honor in 1987, kicking off a prolific and successful career. Suse continues to write and illustrate books for children, including "Fish, Swish! Splash, Dash!: Counting Round and Round", "Alphabet Animals: A Slide and Peek Adventure", and "Dino Shapes". Suse loves to work in her studio and finds pleasure in encouraging readers to make their own artistic discoveries. Suse lives in Arvada, Colorado, with her husband, Stuart.
