Contraire, Bastien. Undercover: One of These Things is Almost Like the Others. PICTURE BOOK. Phaidon, 2016. $18.95. Content: G.
A new spin on a look and find book. There are two-page spreads full of items where one item is ALMOST like the others, but not quite. Among the leaves, if you look closely, you’ll see a butterfly. Among the poultry, you’ll find a teapot. The book is wordless. Just like the cover, the interior illustrations are created using just three colors: pink, green, and brown. The images are mostly simplified, but that works perfectly with the concept of finding a similar sized and colored item that is ALMOST like the others.
