ADELE'S ALBUM

In a broad wordless picture-book (10 1/2"" x 17"")--which is actually generous enough for a toddler to use as a tent as pictured on the title page--the characters and objects introduced on the first two double spreads are subsequently combined, contrasted, and transformed. Clean, precisely drawn and lull of humor, individual images march rhythmically across the pages or hide among an array of their fellows. There are many mini-dramas and visual jokes to be discovered with repeated perusals; the chicks that romp through every page are especially delightful. This is sure to enchant the youngest ""readers"" and their parents; the quality of the art and the whimsical juxtapositions give it appeal for all ages.
