Synopsis

Look! by Jeff Mack

Using only two words - LOOK and OUT - Jeff Mack relates an entire story about an attention loving gorilla, a television loving boy, and a friendship that develops over books. Simple yet richly creative, cleverly and colourfully illustrated with textured backgrounds and creative type designs, and surprisingly funny and tender given the sparcity of text. LOOK! is the type of book that captivates everyone who sees it. A more child friendly version of IT'S A BOOK and a feel good story for both parents and children alike. LOOK! possesses the feel of a classic board book.

Reviews

Praise for LOOK!: An Amazon Best Book of the Month! * The slapstick action unfolds on linen-textured backgrounds, battered vintage book covers, and the actual pages of a book hat-tips to the physicality of books that hint at a happy ending for bibliophiles of all ages. Even if audiences miss these winks and nods to the tactile pleasures of reading, they ll still love that gorilla: hulking, eager-to-please and almost palpably furry, he ll be welcome in any room.

Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal Mack s gentle, cartoonish illustrations are cleverly drawn on old book covers and endpapers, a subtle detail that emphasizes the joy of reading, and with a playful two-word vocabulary, even the littlest readers will be able to get in on the fun.

Look! treads familiar metafictive ground in celebrating the pleasures of reading, but it manages to feel fresh nonetheless, with inventive use of controlled text, vibrant mixed-media art, and thoughtful design.
