Acrobat Family (The)
by Anouck Boisrobert & Louis Regaud
Age Range: Under_5
Acrobat Family is more than a simple counting book. Its physical format resembles that of a circus tent featuring ten colourful acrobatic performers together with the ‘world’s strongest cat’ named Ginger. It starts with acrobat number one and ends in an immense tower of ten acrobats as well as a surprise at the end of the book. As you open each page the book grows in scale to its magnificent conclusion.
French authors and illustrators Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud work as a team and have come up with a magical and innovative creation. As with their book In the Forest, this one is also full of surprises – a wonderful, vibrant pop-up circus. More than a book, it is an object of beauty, a piece of art to reassure, to keep and admire. It would be unfair to label this title as a pure novelty or pop-up book because its artistic creativity and genius, especially in paper engineering, goes far beyond such a description.
