Format: Hardcover
Gianettino perceives childhood toys in a way different than most people might do; with horror. True colors are revealed when the plastic is confronted a little too closely for their liking. Dogs' nuzzles turn into fangs and white rabbits suffer head wounds. A very worthwhile book; childhood nightmares surfaced.

Format: Hardcover
Much like Joost Elffers or Saxton Freymann (those guys who do the Play With Your Food books), Larry Gianettino gets a lot of emotion out of little things. The book is made up of extreme, extreme close-ups of animal toys - the miniture type that you'd buy for 10 cents in a seedy novelty shop, that were made in china and don't quite get the anatomy right.
The emotion range is wider than just scary, however. Each photo is a glipse into a disposible, plastic life. Does the piggy want to play or cause terror? Is the lamb timid, sad or sleepy? More interesting is the effects of mass production on expression - is that red spot on the bunny a flower or a head wound?
Fun, funny and thoughtful. Plus the printing quality is phenominal.

This was a great book! The pictures really where touching.In answer to the ? the bunny has a head wound not a flower ( I am a HUGE fan of that picture!) I also LOVE the Psychotic duck and Fuzzy black bear! May Larry Gianettino rest in peace with all his little creatures.
