“Hiss” is a story that will take you on a roller coaster ride of imagination and emotion. You and your child will experience excitement, comfort, uneasiness, and back to comfort again, in a few short pages.
The use of imagination is stressed in this book since the only pictures that you ever see are of the environment that surrounds Hiss’ home. You never see Hiss or his mommy. You only have to read about them to experience their emotions as they live their daily lives. Although Hiss and his mommy are described in loose detail in book, there is much left to the imagination of the child.
Discussion of some elements of the book may be initiated by the child and the reader will find that he or she will become part of this book. Describing an Emu or how fangs (teeth) grow in, can forge a bond between child and reader, and may be cause for discussion in the future.
Enjoy this book to the fullest that your imagination can take you and your child.
Many of the pages have an optional “Paint Me” feature for children to finger paint the pages and create their own custom version of the book.
Additional features: Professional voice over, table of contents control to navigate easily through the book and an audio on/off control.
