A stunningly original story that plays with the physical boundaries of the book as an object to encourage interaction and imagination! Every time you turn a page in this book, something gets splatted onto the page opposite! From custard pies, sandwiches, water balloons, and ice-creams - a whole series of outrageous splats will build and build into a hilarious story that will have children roaring with laughter.

Richard Byrne
A funny and original high-concept picture book where the book itself interferes with what happens on the page. Readers get the chance to press the buttons and witness the hilarious slapstick results every time the page is turned. It's an interactive experience for the reader, who ultimately has to help in restoring normality.
