PICTURE BOOK - Apples and Robins by Lucie Felix

Illustrated by the author
2016, Chronicle Books (2013 in France)
48 pgs.
Goodreads rating: 4.02 - 257 ratings
My rating:  4
Endpapers: none
1st line/s:  "All you need for apples are circles and the color red."

My comments:  This story tells of a backyard of robins and apple trees and how the two thrive together.  Shapes are cut from the pages of the book, and when overlayed onto drawn, brightly colorful shapes, create a new image.  Pretty cool and wonderful!

Goodreads:  In this extraordinary book, one thing transforms into another as each page turns—a circle becomes an apple, an oval becomes a bird, winter becomes spring. Constantly surprising and brilliantly constructed, Lucie Félix's Apples and Robins is full of the magic of shape, color, and imagination. All you need to do . . . is turn the page.
