Board books with rotating mechanisms
This highly original series uses a series of swivels and tabs to let children transform animals into something in the human world. The ingenuous rotating mechanism is at the vanguard of book engineering, using bionicbased principles to turn 24 animals into something from everyday life: a blue whale into an airship, a shell into an opera house, a pelican to a helicopter and a giraffe to a pilot. These mind-boggling transformations are grouped into three main themes: Animal Mechanics, Animal Design and Animal Architecture. By turning the rotating mechanism themselves, children will be mesmerized at the connection between animals and machines, clothes and buildings, and much more.
