Additional Notes

From The Publisher*One piece of string comes untied from a parcel and changes into a spider's web, a ropy updo, a layer of snow on a birdhouse roof, and other surprises.
   Illustrated using Jocelyn's delightful paper collage, this wordless board book invites little ones to follow along and discover that each spread is made up of one single piece! This is a book that will inspire the youngest readers to see their own expanding worlds as a collection of interconnected shapes and colors.
From The Publisher*A wordless board book that follows the journey of one piece of string as it comes untied from a package and transforms into a swing set and many other things along the way.
From The Publisher*Can you follow one strand of string through this knotty book?
