PreS-Gr 1—Mack's latest picture book is told with only two words, but they convey an array of emotions, including excitement, surprise, anger, and sadness. A playful gorilla tries to get a boy's attention by flinging around books and stepping on them. But no matter how many times (or ways) the gorilla says, "Look" (14), the boy keeps his eyes on the television. As the gorilla's behavior becomes increasingly unruly, the boy's exclamations of "Look out!" become serious. When the gorilla accidentally breaks the TV, the boy shouts "Out! Out! Out!" but then discovers the joy of reading, and shares his discovery with the gorilla. "Look. Look! Look! Look!" he says while pointing to the gorilla and Tarzan characters on the page. Mixed-media illustrations and alternating font styles are set against different colored and textured backdrops. This is a fun read-aloud that will have children wanting to look and look again.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
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."—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
"The personalities and emotions of the chunky, fluffy ape and the TV-entranced boy nearly vibrate off the page. Look, indeed! An energetic invitation to the joys of books."—Kirkus Reviews
"This is a fun read-aloud that will have children wanting to look and look again."—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."—Booklist
"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."—Horn Book
