Is that a table--or a cow? You won't believe your eyes as this humorous guessing game and visual puzzle from award-winning graphic designer Seymour Chwast, co-founder of the legendary Push Pin Studios, transforms a simple object into something completely different. Each delightfully drawn initial image is revealed, after a page turn, to be part of a larger or more elaborate thing. The objects become both more complex and sillier--ball and toaster? Nah, it's a bulldog--as we make our way to the final transformation, a pair of scissors that becomes the face of the cat we've been waiting for. Readers young and old will giggle as they see the importance of recognizing odd but simple shapes and learning how they work together to form more complicated images.
