If you ignore the title “Warning: Do Not Open this Book!” by Adam Lehrhaupt you will definitely have an adventure. The reviewer compares it to Press Here, an imaginative book for young children that seems to bring change with every page. (see review on EPL website) When children do turn the page, they are met with “Why did you turn the page? Didn’t you see the warning?” And, of course, the action develops, introducing artistic monkeys, danger signs, and eventually a predator that the children must fend off to save the monkeys. A delightfully interactive story that promotes imagination and abstract thinking and is just plain fun!

Shira S.
