Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anne Pechnyo
This interactive, pop-up board book allows readers and listeners to "transform" into different beings, including a witch, a robot, and a pirate. When the book is opened, each two-page spread is illustrated with the face of the new character, complete with holes for the reader's eyes and handles to hold the book. The left-hand page of each spread starts with the predictable text "I am..." giving even the youngest listeners the opportunity to look at the picture and determine the character. The text on the right-hand page of each spread gives a phrase that each character might say, such as "To the rescue!" for the superhero. The "masks" made when looking through the book are complete with one pop-up feature, sure to please readers and listeners alike, giving the book a lose connection to Halloween. While this board book is not heavy on plot or characters, with only 8 pages and containing less than 30 words, this book is a fun addition to libraries in preschools or homes of very young children.

Kirkus Reviews
With die-cut holes for eyes and handles, readers can hold this board book, in its open state, up to their faces to create a variety of costumed personas. Among the featured creatures are a robot, a superhero and a witch in the interior and a mummy on the cover. The characters are given a couple of lines of dialogue to announce their identities and make their signature sounds or statements: "I'm a proud pirate! / Ahoy there!" Each face has one rather delicate pop-up facial feature or accessory, such as the witch's protruding nose and the superhero's mask, which will likely not withstand extensive, rambunctious play. Ho's cheery, smiling cartoons in bold colors imbue the title with a lively energy. While the cover does portray a spooky spider and an orange-and-black color scheme, this title could easily stretch beyond the Halloween season. Children old enough not to be frightened by masks should get a kick out of this. (Board book. 2-4)
