Description

For fans of The Book with No Pictures and Press Here, this hilarious interactive picture book lets kids in on the joke.
 
“A brilliantly playful book that experiments with the physical boundaries of the book as an object, encouraging interaction and imagination.” 
—Oliver Jeffers, bestselling illustrator of 
The Day the Crayons Quit 


See what happens when flipping the page of this gleeful picture book gets you—SPLAT!—a pie in the face, followed by—SQUISH!—an insect sandwich, and—SPLASH!—a deluge of water balloons. Bright colors and appealing visual gags add up to a perfect mess—no cleanup necessary.

Praise For Splat!

“Burgerman’s first children’s book is a mess—in a good way. . . . Set against bright, crayon-colored backdrops, Burgerman’s cartoons, outlined in thick black lines, are as in-your-face as it gets . . . Good, not so clean fun that will delight.” –Publishers Weekly

"Jon Burgerman’s playful voice and silly sense of humor are on every page of this book. Kids will love anticipating the 'SPLAT!' as they turn each page." —Brown Johnson, Executive Vice President and Creative Director of Sesame Workshop

“A brilliantly playful book that experiments with the physical boundaries of the book as an object, encouraging interaction and imagination.” —Oliver Jeffers, bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit
