Near, Far

By Silvia Borando

I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea.

In this playful, interactive introduction to ideas of perspective, you’re invited to guess the seven animals that hide in the book’s pages. It may sound easy but, at first, you can only see the animals right up close … and things look so different from up close and faraway! What looks like an elephant’s trunk might actually be a little birdie’s tail … and those two googly eyes? Well, when we zoom out, they don’t really look like eyes at all! Another funny, wordless picture book from the innovative creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat, this stylish picture book challenges the reader to look at things from a different angle, and forces them to see things anew.

Reviews

'A funny, wordless picture book from the innovative creators of The White Book, this stylish picture book challenges young readers to look at things from a different angle, and forces them to see things anew.' Primary Times

'These two striking books have no words but are very clever visually. […] Lots of fun, and plenty to talk about.' Juno

'Near, Far is a very clever introduction to perspective and how changing distance and scale can make objects look very different. [...] The lack of text, together with the clean, bold, block colour illustrations in both [Now You See Me, Now You Don't] these visually uncomplicated, uncluttered books will help the reader to focus and see things anew.' Carousel
