Up, Tall and High: 11/02/15
Up, Tall and High by Ethan Long at first glance looks like it's going to a concept book, especially since it includes some lift-the-flap action. But's it's really more of an early reader, akin to the ones Arnold Lobel wrote.
There are three short stories to illustrate the concepts of up, tall, and high. Now normally this sort of book would so via a series of illustrated opposites, such as in Hippopposites [LINK]. This one, though, turns expectations on its head for humorous results.
Up, Tall and High is a 2013 Theodore Seuss Geisel medal winner.
