Look, A Book by Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood

Look, A Book is basically a wordless picture book.

Only a few words and sentences litter the pages as two young children discover the joy of losing themselves in the pages of a good book.

Imagination runs wild as the world of the book and reality overlap and intermingle. Gleeson and Blackwood show that it is often the small things that lead to big ideas.

Look, A Book is shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book award. The illustrations are done in Blackwood's iconic style reflecting a carefree, old-fashion childhood. You can check out more of her drawings on her website.

I'm sure this will become a favourite of school librarians everywhere.


  1. It's gorgeous isn't it?

  2. I have not seen this one yet... But I am definitely intrigued!


I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment (esp on mobile devices), otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) & third party cookies, check their script filters in their browser and on their computer.Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All spammer comments will be deleted and reported.
