The Special Collections librarian pulled this curiosity for us, "After Water Aerobics" by Louis Morrison. Part book and part machine, you crank a handle and read the story as it travels past on a conveyor belt. This and the preceding book, "Grandmother's Closet", most captivated us. I woke up thinking of story boards that might best suit each style of book. Of course, the kids would land on far more creative ideas than mine. Maybe we'll follow through on this project after the holidays?
Each little character was created with a hand carved stamp, so the whole thing can be mass produced. I KNOW, right?!! (And FINALLY, I found the macro button on my camera.)
