There's never before been a book like Gallop! Employing a patented new technology called Scanimation, each page is a marvel that brings animals, along with one shining star, to life with art that literally moves. It's impossible not to flip the page, and flip it again, and again, and again. A first book of motion for kids, it shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters. Created by Rufus Butler Seder, an inventor, artist, and filmmaker fascinated by antique optical toys, Scanimation is a state-of-the-art six-phase animation process that combines the "persistence of vision" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. It harks back to the old magical days of the kinetoscope, and the effect is astonishing. Complementing the art is a delightful rhyming text full of simple questions and fun, nonsense replies: Can you gallop like a horse? giddyup-a-loo! Can you strut like a rooster? cock-a-doodle-doo! Every child who opens the book will be amazed, and so will every parent!
My sister bought this for my daughter when she was 2 - I now have two daughters and they LOVE it! I have also bought 'Waddle' which is good, although not quite as good as 'Gallop'. Even grown ups are be fascinated by it. My kids love running up and down the room doing the moves, lol! I know it's not the cheapest book even at the discounted price, but I bought Waddle for a tenner, so I have ordered a couple of these for presents for my daughters friends. Well worth £6.
Sorry, have tried adding pics but can't do it :o( Can anyone help please? x
