It's Waddle And it's in color. And boy, is it irresistible. In the same way that kids can't read Gallop without wanting to gallop around the room, Waddle , an animals-in-motion Scanimation book, will inspire prancing, hopping, stomping, and scampering. And did we mention color? Created by the optical genius behind the phenomenal #1 and #2 New York Times bestselling children's books, Gallop and Swing , Waddle adds touches of color to the images and integrates it into the text. That prancing pig is pink, the leaping dolphin is blue, the slithering snake yellow. The Scanimation itself is also more lifelike, as the author continues to refine his patented Scanimation process, resulting in a more fluid, realistic motion. Nothing else compares. Waddle teaches color and movement. Its language is a joy, the rhymes inspiring, the animals full of life. And one more thing: Waddle has a surprise ending. Something else to grab the reader--literally.
