Price: USD$12.95

To play this game, you just need to screw a piece of paper up into a ball and you’re off. You can score goals, follow the course or hit the targets. Make up your own rules: there can be one or several players... The book can be stood up or laid down on a table, or you can hang it up… You can throw the ball, flick it, use a rubber band to shoot it or use the detachable piece of board to help perfect your aim. Have fun, but beware, grown-ups have been known to borrow this game and even to take it to work, so keep your eye on it!

Hervé Tullet (b.1958) studied Fine Art and worked as an Art Director for ten years before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world's most innovative children's authors and has won numerous awards. Known in France as 'The Prince of pre-school books', Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. His titles include the New York Times bestseller Press Here, as well as I am Blop!, The Big Book of Art and the 'Let's Play Games' series of board books for young children, also published by Phaidon Press. He lives in Paris.
