Look a Book!

Libby Gleeson, Freya Blackwood

An exhilarating picture book read from dream-team pairing Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood. When two ragamuffins stumble across a book in the dust their world begins to change. The familiar becomes fantastical, the mundane becomes magical, and a fractured community finds a focus. Set in a dreary, underprivileged, contemporary world, Look, A Book! is a whirl through the magic of imagination, encouraging young children to explore, be inspired and immerse themselves in stories.

Review

Look, A Book! is the latest collaboration from Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood. Set in an underprivileged society, two children discover a book lying in the dust. Dreary surrounds become magical scenes of wonder, as the children’s imagination transforms their reality. On their journey, they sail through dust, float in a teacup and ride atop a plastic bottle. The minimal text set among the whimsical illustrations teaches younger readers about the magic of imagination that can stem from reading a book.
