Gallop!, by Rufus Butler Seder, is a fun little piece that will have young children moving around as they show off their agility and physically respond to questions like “Can you gallop like a horse?” or “Can you flutter like a butterfly?”

There’s not much of a plot here, but that’s not the point. It’s the lyrical rhyming of the text, the colorful lettering of the print, and most of all, the patented Scanimation® pictures that will have children (and their parents) wanting to read this book again and again. Yes, Scanimation®; it’s a technique that optically animates artwork. Thus, as the reader turns a page, the displayed animal moves. I admit it; it had me mesmerized.

Quill says: Out with the old, in with the new. Move over pop-up books. You now have some stiff competition.
