"French-y and artistic, these cool board books will pique the interest of hip parents and their "b b s"." - "Real Simple" 'instantly engage the child from the very beginning. Unlike other books for children they take absolutely no time at all to grasp the child's attention as the die cuts, bright colours and other mechanisms magically enthral the child almost the second the child reaches for the book. ... delightful ... it is clear to see that they go far beyond the realms of everyday books; enlightening, inspiring and exciting children by clever twists in each book. At GBP4.99 each they are very competitively priced and sure to be a winner with all small children.' Sarah Cooper, Family Fun Guide (familyfunguide.co.uk), May 2011 Herves work is a sumptuous visual assault to the eyes, a stylised celebration of colour, of pattern, of textures - and a few, but not too many, well-chosen words. ... the brevity of text is precisely what brings the books to life. They are designed to encourage lively interaction, to prompt the readers to tell their own stories and, most importantly, for parents and children to share and enjoy a mutual experience. ... The series of six Let's Play Games! books focuses on the theme of playful discovery, with a mix of textures, flaps and cut-outs in a chunky boardbook format that will sustain a good degree of robust manhandling from toddlers. ... [Tullet's] style has distinct echoes of modern art from the likes of Picasso, Dali and Matisse.' Catherine O'Dolan, Junior, August 2011
