Written by Anna Brett and illustrated by Rebecca Wright, KOOB 2: The Upside-Down Book is the follow up to the very successful KOOB: The Backwards Book, and is published by Carlton Books. When you open the book, the very first thing you read lets you know this is going to be different...
Rather than sitting working through an activity book, KOOB encourages you to take it a step further, sitting upside down, tearing pages, even conducting some great fun scientific experiments that children think are just playing or doing tricks! There are masses of activities to take part in, plenty to keep any child occupied and happy (and telling you new facts every 5 minutes) for days...
My 7 year old adores this book. It really has captured his interest, and although he hasn't yet been convinced to even write in it, let alone rip it, he's read it cover to cover and I have lost count of the times when he's meant to be reading quietly before sleep and instead he's bringing me his book to show me a must-see page.
The age suggestion of 7+ is right, this book is beyond my 6 year old, and stretches my 7 year old, but is introducing him to a more mature style, with no colourful images, and a bit of thinking needed to 'get' some of the ideas and jokes.
We really like this book, and for entertainment and longevity (and the sneaky educational aspects) we think it is excellent value for money.
KOOB: The Upside-Down Book is released tomorrow, June 2nd. Published by Carlton Books in paperback with illustrations in black and white throughout the 144 pages. RRP £7.99.
