What's that behind you?

Two brother each have something the other wants, and in order to get it they point and yell the only words in this playful book: "Don't look now but..." When one brother turns around the other laughs and grabs the object of his desire, but as the game escalates odd things start to happen... Dramatic candy-colored artwork and a freewheeling narrative

The comic-book style isn't my favorite, but this would be a good book for reluctant readers in first and second grade - lots of pictures and action, the few words are repeated and pretty easy to decode or are onomatopoeia. Great for visual kids.

Wordless adventure: two brothers start off trying to trick each other (a la "made you look!") but they find themselves both flung into an imaginary land full of silly monsters. Lots of action but with less depth than other wordless books.

Briant's books are like comics mixed with Sendak mixed with prozac.
