Once again Tom Booth, author ofDon't Blink!, breaks the fourth wall to delight and entice readers young and old in this sweet and funny, experiential picture book.

How did you find this book? Don't you know this book is a secret book?

Readers will delight in being asked how they found this book. Did Monkey tell? Was it Owl? Giraffe?

Maybe the animal who "told" would rather share than keep a secret. Especially when sharing a book as good as this one makes him so happy!

"Utilizing the same style, tone, format, central character, and several of the same curious creatures fromDon’t Blink!, Booth turns his attention from an epic staring contest to a secret with this latest. ... It has the potential tospark conversations about keeping secrets and to inspire reading."--School Library Journal

Praise for DON'T BLINK by Tom Booth:

"The staring contest: it’s a refreshingly low-tech competition, and Booth captures the silly thrill of it all.His story opens with a bright-eyed girl sitting cross-legged in a minimally rendered outdoor setting. She looks straight at the reader, shouts “Go,” and assumes a fixed (but always amiable) gaze." —Publishers Weekly,starred review

"Competitive readers will love this picture book.... A young girl kicks the tale off with a challenge: a staring contest. Before you can say “go,” she’s looking out at the reader, gaze friendly but unblinking (she won’t be easy to beat). A bird flies along and asks if it too can join in on the contest." —, Summer 2017's Best Children's Books

"Ajolly fun interactive read-aloud, perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing." —School Library Journal
