Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a large format book with a gimmick. Each spread about a specific subject consists of two sets of circles around a hole cut out in the center of the page. A cut-out of a pointing finger is mounted on a circular device that fits into the hole on the left side of the book. When the hand is correctly seated in the device, it can be twisted to a question that is written in the circles around the hole. The hand is then picked up and placed on the hole in the center of the right page. Magically, it answers the question selected on the left hand page. The subjects run the gamut¾outer space, animals, plants, the human body and sports. Topics are quite broad, and the information is very basic, but this is fun to play with. Lots of factoids, so it has value even after the hand is lost. 2000, Big Fish,
