About this Book Graphic artist Jean Jullien insightfully and comically depicts a set of clever and surprising before-and-after two-frame narratives, each progressed by a page turn. From pale skin to sunburned skin, dirty to clean, long hair to short hair (too long again), each page builds anticipation and a satisfying resolution with each pairing.
Reviews from Around the World Little hands can cause big damage to traditional tomes, which is why board books are so fabulous... Jullien's This is Not a Book is still a favourite with Alfie (nearly eight) and Kitty (four and a half). His illustrations are so engaging and entertaining they have been known to make them laugh out loud. His latest work looks at the concept of before and after, with a surprise reveal on every page turn, plus a bonus gatefold. It explores dirty then clean, long hair then short and bump then baby, plus more advanced ideas such as egg then chicken (or chicken then egg?) through bold, striking images on colourful glossy pages."—BambinoGoodies.co.uk
"An imaginative and playful board book... Using bold graphics on thick sturdy coloured pages Jullien takes a simple learning concept adding some novel examples which is what makes Before & After an ideal book to share with a young child."—OutsideInWorld.org.uk
