About the Author

Tom Booth is an author, illustrator, and character designer who has worked in both animation and publishing at Macmillan, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, Workman Publishing, and Nicktoons. Tom made his earliest marks sometimes on his parents' antique kitchen table growing up in Pennsylvania. Now living in Brooklyn, New York, Tom is currently at work on several picture books on a table all his own."


"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. Ingenious, interactive, and just meta enough, it may even convince a few reluctant readers that staring at a book can be a lot of fun."--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. Before the reader knows it, the pages are filling up with creatures determined to keep their eyes wide open.", Summer 2017's Best Children's Books

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