Lego City Heroes! - Alana Cohen and Dave White

Lego City Heroes!
Lego City
Alana Cohen (Author)

Dave White (Illustrator)
ISBN 9780545274395

This book is very different from the rest of the books in the Lego city series. Instead of being a reader style or a sticker book, it is an oversized board book. It has over 40 flip and reveal flaps. The fantastic thing about the way this book was created is that when the flaps are flipped the pictures are still complete. In many flap books the flaps when turned, break up the picture. In this one they are designed so that as each one is flipped it continues the background picture. The illustrations are seamless and you can flip one, some or all of the flaps and have a series of different pictures to look at on the same page. The pages are the bus depot and downtown, police station, fire station and hospital. Even though the author and illustrator are different from any of the other books in the series, there is still a continuity of look and feel that fit them all together nicely. Children of all ages will love exploring this book and seeing the different combinations they can come up with on each page.
