Who What Where? by Olivier Tallec

Last Year I enthusiastically reviewed the curiously out of the ordinary picture book Who Done It? by Olivier Tallec. Everything about Tallec's book was fun and funny. Tallec brings back the same cast of characters and more mysteries to be solved in his newest book Who What Where?

With a spine on the horizontal, the format makes you lift the cover and hold the book in a different way, a way that lends itself to the story inside. Tallec's questions are not as easy to answer as they seem at first. Readers will pore over illustrations trying to figure out who chose the rug for a hiding place, who is looking in the mirror, who is playing ghosts and who jumped a little too much on the bed. The crime scene is at the top of the fold with the line up of possible perps below it. Tallec's bright palette and fantastic facial expressions on his humans and animals make Who What Where? a real gem. Be sure to find either or both of these books by Tallec and be ready to have a very fun time reading with your little one.
