Summary
"First the egg, then the chicken. First the seed, then the flower. First the word, then the story. First the paint, then the picture. This is a book about transformations... from tadpole to frog, from caterpillar to butterfly. But it is also a book about creativity - as paint becomes picture, word becomes story... and commonplace becomes extraordinary." -- GBIP
Summary
Using simple text and illustrations, shows how animals and objects change, including tadpoles to frogs and seeds to flowers, in a book with cutouts so that certain colors from the previous picture help create the next picture
