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!
