Parsley Rabbit's Book About Books

Parsley Rabbit's Book About Books - Frances Watts, David Legge I read this when one of my students returned it and said a lot of the pages were ripped. The interactive flaps are really cute but a little but delicate for young readers. I liked the meta nature of the story and the way Parsley addressed the reader and laid out information, "these are endpapers," and so on. The main drawback for me was the uncanny valley illustrations of Parsley and his little brother, Basil.
