「啊，不小心畫錯了！」面對潔白的畫紙，你是否不敢動筆呢？Barney Saltzberg要告訴大家，每個錯誤都是創新的機會！在《Beautiful Oops！》裡面，撕破的紙，正好變成鱷魚的嘴巴；一翻頁，墨水印就成了跑車的輪胎。就連揉成一團的紙球，都能變成綿羊呢！【文∕博客來外文館】
A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It’s OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes! A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn’t ruin a drawing—not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don’t be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator.
An award winning, best-selling, one-of-a-kind interactive book, Beautiful Oops! shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion “telescope”—each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.
Barney Saltzberg is the author of more than 30 books for children, including Beautiful Oops!, A Little Bit of Oomph, Good Egg and the bestselling Touch and Feel Kisses series. Additionally, he’s recorded four albums of songs for children. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two dogs, and a pond full of fish.
