9780763676216: Before After

Which came first? No words are necessary in this beautiful, artfully humorous book, in which every turn of the page offers a surprise.

Everyone knows that a tiny acorn grows into a mighty oak and a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. But in this clever, visually enchanting volume, it’s also true that a cow can result in both a bottle of milk and a painting of a cow, and an ape in a jungle may become an urban King Kong. Just as day turns into night and back again, a many-tiered cake is both created and eaten down to a single piece. With simple, graphic illustrations sure to appeal to even the youngest of children, this beautiful rumination on the passage of time will please the most discerning adult readers, too.

Review:

Crisply outlined digital images are tinted with muted pastels and splashed with warmer colors. Some are serious, others contain flashes of wit, and an air of scientific objectivity makes the humor even funnier. ... It’s a fascinating examination of the work that time does, and it offers new possibilities—and smiles —every time it’s read.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A humorous, intriguing, fascinating, insightful look at the concept of before and after, including the small (such as the acorn and oak) to the more complex (the building of a city). Ramstein’s artwork has a fine-lined, almost Chris Ware–like sophistication, and the result will be readers, young and old, paging through the book multiple times, both for aha moments as well as hidden depths.
—Booklist

The clean, subdued-palette digital illustrations make the connections crystal clear as identical objects are copied and recolored. ... Like many wordless books, this one is not meant to be shared in silence. The comments and conversations it provokes are at least half the fun.
—The Horn Book

This harmonious album of clean-lined, very simple images in before-and-after pairs or short sequences practically compels viewers to ruminate about changes and seasons. ... Younger children will enjoy the mild challenge of figuring out the connections between, for instance, a slingshot and a broken window, a homing pigeon and an airmail envelope, a woolly sheep and (several steps and a knitted winter hat later) wood smoke drifting from a chimney in the snow. Peaceful, sometimes mildly humorous art provides gentle nudging toward a philosophical frame of mind.
—Kirkus Reviews

No words at all appear amid the stylish pictures and silent mirth of "Before After"... This chic volume invites children to make before-and-after connections between such things as a bean pod and a bar of chocolate, and a chicken and an egg.
—The Wall Street Journal

Here in careful, elegant matte illustrations, each one to a page, Anne-Margot Ramstein and Matthias Arégui invite children (and grown-ups) to see the before-and-after connections between such things as berries and a cup of tea, a rocking horse and a rocking chair, and, amusingly, an egg and a chicken, and a chicken and an egg.
—Wall Street Journal

A clever, wonderfully illustrated book.
—Good Housekeeping

This popular book of clean, elegant illustrations is simple enough for the youngest non-reader to follow (before: caterpillar, after: butterfly), but clever enough to engage older children as well (before: slingshot; after: broken window).
—Courier-Journal

Beautifully precise drawings... With 176 pages to pore over, this top-notch work won't leave grown-ups feeling shortchanged like many other picture books do.
—Chicago Tribune
