Heads and Tails by John Canty is an extraordinary children’s picture book.   Leveraging the natural and universal fascination that children have with  animals, the book utilises hints and recognition to build a sense of  anticipation on each page, that is  resolved on the following page when  the identity of the animal is discovered.

Young readers are engaged in the process  of deduction by drawing on visual  prompts and clues such as  where an animal may live,  what the animal may look like  and sounds the animal makes.  The effect is that each page presents an engaging yet  accessible mini mystery for  the child to solve. Accordingly, the young reader’s inevitable  participation in the process of  discovery is ensures the  book’s enjoyment.

The tempo and sense of anticipation  of Heads and Tails is in a similar  tradition to Eric Carle and Bill  Martin Jr’s iconic Brown Bear,  Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Head and Tails is sure to be an instant classic.
