Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Master cut-paper artist Eric Carle takes us on a lively lip-the-flap fantasy, in which two children attempt escape from a hungry giant. After Mom warns them to stay in the yard, the two kids start to see huge objects and are caught by a giant looking for his evening meal. When the enormous man locks them both up in his castle's dungeon, the two begin their daring escape through doors, tunnels, and passages, all the while dodging lurking creatures. Carle's artwork is as original as ever, and double-sided flaps reveal plenty of fun objects and scary faces. Sure to excite fans of Carle's artwork and those who love giant tales, Watch Out! A Giant! is a mighty addition for story times or role playing.
Publishers Weekly
Eric Carle takes readers on an interactive romp as two children run for their lives in Watch Out! A Giant!, which was first published in 1978. Flaps that lift to show pages underneath aid the journey through Carle's distinctive collages. (June) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
