Summer reading list #4 : under the ocean

Under the Ocean: That is where number 4 of our summer reading list brings us. After #1 about playing in the sand, #2 about the summer garden and #3 about an ABC of a sailor it is time to go diving. “Under the sea” is a beautifully designed pop-up book that plays the dichotomy between down and under, above the water and in the sea well. While on the top side you can find boats, ships, islands and harbours there is a totally different world under the surface: whales, fishes and turtles, divers and corals, icebergs and seashells. So: Climb aboard the red sailboat Océano and get ready to depart on an exciting expedition around the world! The scenery changes as the boat sails from a busy port to the icy Arctic, through stormy seas, on into an idyllic sunset.

While following the numbers from 1 to 10 and searching for the red dot one is thrilled by the surprising diversity of shapes. It is fun to fiddle about the construction of paper lids, wheels and garlands – no matter what age! Das Buch “1 roter Punkt” von David A. Carter is ein wahres Kunstwerk aus Papier. Es wurde 2005 mit der Hans-Christian-Andersen-Medaille  für das beste künstlerische Bilderbuch ausgezeichnet. Auf jeder der 10 Doppelseiten entfaltet sich eine raffinierte Papier-Konstruktion  –  filigran, verblüffend, in elementaren Farben und Formen. Und in jedem Gebilde steckt „1 roter Punkt”. Man folgt den Zahlen von 1 bis 10 und freut sich an der Vielfalt der überraschenden Gestaltungsideen. Neugierige und Tüftler jeglichen Alters …
