This clever, wordless book is filled with beautiful before and after illustrations. Some are simple: wheat turns to bread, a flock of sheep is then a ball of yarn. Others are more complex: a cow in a pasture becomes a bottle of milk, but pull away and that same cow becomes a painting.  Some of the scenarios will make you smile, some will make you wonder, all will delight.  Read this with your children (4 and up) and be prepared to discuss and to answer questions. This is one that adults will enjoy as much as kids.
