About The Book

This silly board book shows what happens when animals see themselves in the mirror for the first time, and allows children to reflect on symmetry, identity, and the animal world.

One day,
at the beginning of this book,
something strange was lying on the floor.

What did the animals find? When they pick it up, things get out of hand. It gets weirder and weirder until...

Mark Janssen has created a board book that will charm readers young and old, with bright and fun illustrations. A mylar mirror at the end encourages children to play with symmetry too!
