Description

Uses the same signature format and style as the series' previous titles. The question "What boat am I?" and a linked written clue invites kids to lift the first portion of the folded page to reveal another clue and more of the featured boat, and then a final fold-out shows the entire vessel. Fold-out on the final spread reveal a bright and bustling harbor scene with all the featured boats. Those featured are: sailboat, tugboat, ocean liner, rowboat, ferry, houseboat, and barge.




About the Author

Tom Slaughters dazzling "collage+" art often has the quality of seeming to levitate off the pages. What could be better for a book portraying things that float? Throughout his career, and in recent contributions to Blue Apple Books' Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow?, Mr. Slaughter continues to garner recognition, acclaim, and enchanted readers. The author lives in New York, New York.




Praise For Boat Works

Praise for the Giant Fold-Out Book series:
"...the formula doesn't begin to describe the wonder of opening up each page into a satisfyingly enormous illustration. Young children will have a blast, over and over again, opening the pages, looking at the pictures, and identifying the [featured subject matter]." --School Library Journal

Praise for Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow?:
*"Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind. Clear a space on the shelves for this one." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
