A beautiful hardcover edition of the New York Times bestselling interactive picture book from the creator of Press Here!
With the graphic intensity of Eric Carle, the interactive fun of Poke-a-Dot books, and the humor of The Day the Crayons Quit but with a vision all his own, Hervé Tullet invites readers to MIX IT UP in a dazzling adventure of color and tones, filled with magic and wonder.
Follow the artist's simple instructions, and suddenly colors appear . . . mix . . . splatter . . . and vanish in a vivid world powered only by the reader's imagination. The result is not only enchantment and giggles, but a real and deeper understanding of colors brought by a true master of his craft.
Just as in his mega-selling classic Press Here, Tullet sets readers on an extraordinary journey of color, motion, and interactivity. Mix It Up! is the perfect gift book for parents and kids to cherish and read again and again, as well as an invaluable teaching tool for preschool and kindergarten classrooms.

STIMULATES CREATIVITY & IMAGINATION: Celebrate the magic of three simple colors transforming into an entire rainbow of possibilities.
