Tullet — who joins such greats as Eric Carle and Leo Lionni as a master of his craft — sets readers on an extraordinary interactive journey all within the printed page.
Tullet prompts plenty of giggles in addition to a profound understanding of colors, and once again displays his unique genius and vision in a work that is a glorious and richly satisfying companion to Press Here.

Street photographer and storyteller extraordinaire Brandon Stanton is the creator of the wildly popular New York Times bestseller Humans of New York.

The result is a hip, heartwarming ode to little humans everywhere.
This is the story of four puppies: Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, Ooh-La-La, and Gaston. Gaston works the hardest at his lessons on how to be a proper pooch.
Gaston fits right in with his poodle sisters. But a chance encounter with a bulldog family in the park — Rocky, Ricky, Bruno, and Antoinette — reveals there’s been a mix-up, and so Gaston and Antoinette switch places.
The new families look right… but they don’t feel right. Can these puppies follow their noses — and their hearts — to find where they belong?
From Kadir Nelson, winner of the Caldecott Honor and the Coretta Scott King Author and Illustrator Awards, comes a transcendent picture book in the tradition of Margaret Wise Brown about a lost little bear searching for home.
This simple story works on so many levels: as the tale of a bear who finds his way home with the help of his animal friends; as a reassuring way to show children how to comfort themselves and find their way in everyday life.
And on a more philosophical level, as a method of teaching readers that by listening to your heart and trusting yourself, you will always find a true home within yourself — and that even when it feels like you are alone, you never really are.
