InWarning: Do Not Open This Book! Lehrhaupt begged readers not to allow theanimals in that book to escape; now, the animals plead with children to leavethis book open, so they aren’t trapped inside. Lehrhaupt’s humor is sharperthis time around, even edgy—a toucan and gator wear bandages, suggesting thatshutting a book doesn’t just trap characters, it injures them. Set againstblack backgrounds, Forsythe’s digital artwork is equally attuned to theslightly sadistic mood. As book’s end approaches, he delivers an extremeclose-up of a dewy-eyed monkey making its desperate plea to readers: “We’ll begood. Promise.” (Publishers Weekly September 28, 2015)
In contrast to the bright pages of their popular Warning! Do Not Open This Book (2013), here the mood,
along with the interior, is dark. And why not? A group of animals are stuck inside, someone having closed
the book with them in it. Monkey, who bears a resemblance to Mr. Potato Head, is an almost hysterical
narrator, and when he is most insistent, the font of his words increases and exclamation marks appear.
Kids, who will love being in on the joke, will enjoy the illustrations that prove the damage a closed book
creates: an alligator in a sling, a toucan with a bandaged beak, a much bruised banana. The collagelike
illustrations, rendered digitally, have slightly blurred, soft hues, as if they have lost some crispness through
rejection, and are set against black pages. Tension rises as those pages are turned, because they will
eventually lead to . . . the closing of the book. Pair with Press Here, by Hervé Tullet (2013), for another
opportunity for direct reader involvement, or Mo Willems’ We Are in a Book! (2010) to meet another selfconscious
narrator. (Booklist Online December 3, 2015)
