From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2–A graphically bold pop-up book that entices readers to find the one red dot that is hidden on each paper sculpture. Going from 1 to 10, Carter creates a visual hide-and-seek game, ranging from flip-flop flaps to fluttering flicker clickers that really click to orbs that tower above the page. Bold primary colors and a silver-black text give the book a very slick, modern feel. However, because of its delicate nature, it won't withstand repeated circulation. Save it for storytimes, classroom use, or special collections.–Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY

Superficially, the book is a counting book where the reader tries to find one red dot in the middle of "eight obedient orbs", etc.. However, the book is ultimately a work of art. The paper sculptures are are abstract and interactive, and completely stunning. I'm a fan of Sabuda's pop-up books, but I just love the playful abstract nature of this book.
My four year old finally got his book back, and he, too, loves it and reads it every night before bed.
