Publication Date: April 1, 2012
The latest from Joelle Jolivet and Jean-Luc Fromental, the bestselling duo behind 365 Penguins, this book follows Rapido the messenger and his van throughout the city as he delivers packages. Clever flaps on every page give him hints into people's lives and clues as to what he's delivering, and where. The objects that Rapido delivers are represented as symbols, which readers can decipher from the setting and the rhyme. To help with the clues, a packing list of all the objects in Rapido's truck is provided on the title page. It's an interactive treat that celebrates city life and transportation and that features the striking art that has made Jolivet an international sensation.
