Jack just got a new toy, and it-???+-?-+s full of surprises. Each time the box pops open, there-???+-?-+s a new and bigger surprise. Is it a silly toy, a scary toy-???-+?+-+-+-+-+-+-+¡or something else entirely?
With a limited vocabulary and unlimited imagination, Art Spiegelman applies his out-of-the-box thinking to a book that has all the surprise and bounce of a jack-in-the-box.
The story, told in comics format, use a simplified vocabulary appropriate to new readers. Now, in a futher innovation, the two parallel readings available in this bilingual edition allow the child to read and inhabit the story in French or in English, going back-and-forth as he or she pleases. A unique and fun way to experience another language with depth and texture!
