About the Author
Marie Fordacq is a co-founder Editions Tourbillon—the Parisian parent of Twirl—and the author of several popular children's books, including Twirl's Play and Color in Black and White. She and her family live outside Paris, France
Olivier Latyk is part of "Brand New", a European artists' collective, and the illustrator of over 40 children's books. He also creates puzzles, toys, mobiles and enjoys fishing near his home in La Rochelle, France.
Part of the Magnetology series, this oversize board book includes 45 construction-themed magnets-pipes, doors, signs, and loads of vehicles-that can be stuck and re-stuck onto the pages. (A helpful closing spread identifies the vehicles and their capabilities.) The book's four scenes revolve around the building a home, expanding a road, and supplying a neighborhood with water and electricity; Latyk's crisp digital artwork leaves plenty of open space for children to fill with jackhammers, cranes, excavators, and their operators. A mix of questions ("How do you think electricity gets into your house?") and construction details add some substance to the magnet-driven fun, while letting readers consider which tools are right for each job. Ages 3-5. (Apr.)
