There's never before been a book like Gallop! Employing a patented new technology called Scanimation, each page is a marvel that brings animals, along with one shining star, to life with art that literally moves. It's impossible not to flip the page, and flip it again, and again, and again!
A first book of motion for kids, it shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters. Scanimation is a state-of-the-art 6-phase animation process that combines the "persistence of vision" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. Complementing the art is a delightful rhyming text full of simple questions and fun, nonsensical replies: Can you gallop like a horse? Giddyup-a-loo! Can you strut like a rooster? Cock-a-doodle-doo!
