Review: 10 Times 10

If you haven't yet discovered the joys of Hervé Tullet, then now is the time.

Simple, creative and thoroughly artistic, these stream-of-creativity books are a heck of a lot of fun for little ones (and adults!) with plenty of colour, originality and humour.

In 10 Times 10, Tullet explores numbers with page upon page (this is a 128 page book) of colourful interpretation.

Divided into chapters, entries include a single hand that ends up, progressively, with 10 fingers; a face with three noses, four eyes and five mouths; the process of creation through image alone; ditto the process of construction; a story; a series of questions and much more.

Existential creativity for tots. Gotta love that.
