How do you make the ordinary extraordinary? With a little bit of oomph! An utterly inspiring and playful new book on creativity from Barney Saltzberg, author of Beautiful Oops!, A Little Bit of Oomph! teaches the invaluable lesson of throwing your heart into whatever you're doing and trying just a little bit harder- because with a little extra effort and a lot of oomph, you can make anything beautiful.Ã
With a little bit of oomph you can help a sprinkle of seeds become a magical, three-dimensional bouquet of flowers. With a little bit of oomph, small notions-like a goldfish in a little bowl-open out to big oceans (just look through the peephole!). Oomph can transform a dog's tail into a funny tale (there's a miniature book involved). Oomph changes curiosity into discovery, daydreams into playthings, your singing into others dancing.
A triumph of imagination, vibrant, colorful art, and paper engineering, A Little Bit of Oomph! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, spinning circles and gatefolds-and, underlying every page, Barney's timeless message that creativity is for everyone. Just add a little bit of oomph.
