LOOK! is a charming, funny book that uses only two words -- in different ways for different meanings -- to tell an engaging story that celebrates the fun of reading and sharing a good book. The digitally manipulated mixed-media illustrations capture the changing emotions of the two characters and offer subtle references for book lovers, including a library due-date card across from the title page; ragged book-page edges; worn, crackled-looking book-cover spines trimming a two-page spread and serving as individual page backgrounds; and patterned or textured endpaper sheets as backgrounds.

With humor and a light touch, author-illustrator Jeff Mack tackles the books-vs.-TV debate. But beyond the pro-reading message, it's a sweet story of friendship and conflict resolution featuring two adorable characters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
