Have You Heard of Herve?

So I have finally reached a conclusion about my research project for my program: I’m going to investigate unconventional picture books to discover how their characteristics (form, shape, illustrations, text) promote playful experiences for readers.  I have a few ideas on what data (actual books) to use within my investigation, including Herve Tullet’s books in the game series.  Have you heard of Herve Tullet?  He has masterfully captured the possibilities of what can be experienced while interacting with a picture book: his work could be considered a book OR a toy OR a game…which is why I find his books so fascinating (and so does Stella…especially “The Game of Light”).  Take a look at some spreads from a few of his books below, but also be sure to access:
