RedReviewStarPreS-Gr 3—We all have ideas, grown from mysterious origins and frothing with energy. But where do they come from, how do we get them, and what happens when we have them? Tullet's latest offering explores the emotions behind ideas, that ephemeral effervescence that bursts forth at different times in different ways. What Tullet does best is present this emotional journey of an idea in a fun, easily understandable manner with engaging illustrations that seem to pop off of the page. Children (and adults!) will see the origins, progression, and perhaps the end result of an idea in this must-have addition to elementary-level collections.
VERDICT Tullet brings the delight and exuberance to the nebulous science of ideas in a way that engages, entertains, and inspires.
