In this wholly original coloring book, children’s artwork can be turned into entertaining videos to play on a tablet or smartphone. Each page of this book features an aspect of Picasso’s art and life: from his studio—complete with rocking chair, paintbrushes, and dog—to the works themselves, including paintings, sculptures, and sketches. As the pages are colored, they can be photographed with a smartphone or tablet and, with the use of a free app, turned into an animated video, complete with movement, narration, and music. Containing sixteen pages that can be turned into eight twenty-second videos, this book teaches children about Picasso’s life and art through the work they create as well as the brief text introductions to each section. A satisfying blend of art and technology, this unique coloring book will help kids feel the joy of creativity, explore new technology, and let their imagination soar.

A story about a boy who was a little too big for his boots … Goliath always knew he was special. He was big. He was brave. He was the strongest. He was different! Convinced that his home had nothing more to offer, Goliath headed out into the world to show everyone what he was really made of. But he didn’t look so brave when confronted with the sea and he didn’t look so big when stood next to the Sun. So what does being big and brave mean? And why was he determined to be that way … ? Critically acclaimed author and illustrator Ximo Abadía explores concepts of boyhood, growing up, learning, and the complexities we all face in search of our place. Abadía’s vibrant colours and distinctive modern style invites a new reading of a traditional story. Goliath is a tale that is sweet, funny and utterly charming.
