This is one of those unique books, it's quite simple but also quite is a work of pure imagination in letters and colors. Just with the tools we have, letters and numbers, there are also a tutorial and examples to play with the words with the innocence we had when children. Ji Lee express so much in a way that almost feels poetic..
Then only thing I would like to improve would be the binding of the book as some images are meant to be read as a two-page spread but it's a bit hard open the pages. But it's a minor issue, it's quite little, portable and fast to read, I warmly can recommend it.
I got such a kick out of this book and had so much fun with it that I'm not sure I can part with it. I might just keep it at my house and entice my daughter back home for a visit - or 30 - to read this book.
I love this book. It's great fun and I admire the creative effort. It's an example of thinking way outside the box. I'm a big fan of all things outside that damned box.
Thanks, Ji Lee.

Still worth the minutes it takes to read and enjoy.
A consistently clever set of words that also function as word defining images. I expected some winners; but almost all are winners.
