At an amusement park one little boy has the best birthday ever! He eats ice cream, he rides roller coasters, he has a cake with four candles. He spends his whole day with his mother at the Coney Island amusement park, and even when it starts to rain as the sun goes down, it’s still an outstanding day! Told with ingenious use of oronymns — pairs of words or phrases that sound alike but have different spellings and meanings (for example: “ice cream” and “I scream”)— and illustrated with inventively clever die-cut holes in each spread, allowing the text and illustrations to morph into all new meanings with each turn of the page. Your young readers will be amazed by this colorfully illustrated book as they turn the pages back and forth, over and over again to see all the transformations that take place. Ages 3–8. 32pp.
