Description - Look, a Book! by Libby Gleeson

When two ragamuffins stumble across a book
in the dust their world begins to change.
The familiar becomes fantastical, the
mundane becomes magical, and a fractured
community finds a focus.
Set in a dreary, underprivileged, contemporary
world, Look, A Book! is an exhilarating whirl
through the magic of imagination that leaves the
reader in an vertiginous trance.

Buy Look, a Book! by Libby Gleeson from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
