Read full description of the books:
I have no idea who the target audience for this book might be. The illustrations and vocabulary are wildly inappropriate for the normal age range for board books. The style of the artwork makes some of the concepts difficult for a child. I work with children every day, and the conceptual levels in this book are just weird.
As a book for adults who just want something strange and cool, it might work, but the format is causing this to be marketed for parents to read to and with their toddlers. Seriously, what toddler can recognize a small, ornate hair barrette in an illustration, or even knows that word? Will they recognize the very stylized art style as representations of real world concepts, such as a white circle on a darker background of clothing representing a button? Given the style, I would say probably not.
The only reason I gave it a second star is that the concept is so far out there that I can see adults putting it on a coffee table to amuse friends.
