When two children stumble upon a book in the dust, it takes them on an incredible journey. Inspired by the book, their imaginations transform the landscape, make the mundane magical and familiar fantastical. Look, A Book!, illustrated by Greenaway medallist Freya Blackwood, demonstrates how books and imagination can thrive in the most extreme of settings.
