Welcome to the world of Blop! A Blop is a simple shape, somewhere between a flower and a butterfly, a sponge and a drawing of a little man -- above all Blop is whatever you want it to be. Using very few woods and handwritten text "I AM BLOP!" explore many concepts encountered for the first time by young children, including up and down, single and plural, individual and family, city and countryside etc. This single shape represents anything a child's mind can imagine. With 110 illustrations in varying colors and patterns, little or sometimes no words at all, each page has a unique Blop that brigs a whole new dimension to children's reading. "I AM BLOP!" is an invitation to discover and explore everyday life and hundreds of ideas through one simple shape.
Herve Tullet (b.1958) studied Fine Art and worked as an Art Director before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world's most innovative book makers. Known in France as 'The Prince of pre-school books', Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively.
