I admit, I jump around a lot when surfing the web. It doesn’t happen all that often that something makes me stick around for long. Well, here comes the exception to the rule: “The Other side“, on LookyBook, just had me linger for a good 20minutes. Hat tip to Istvan Banyai. His illustration skills and imagination are impressive. “The Other Side” makes you look AND think. I don’t necesarily would want having to explain this to Ella at this point, she’s clearly too young, but I can’t wait for her being old enough to ‘get it’.
“The Other Side” is a wordless picture book devoted to the study of opposing vantage-points. Each picture–be it a young girl practicing cello and watching a paper airplane soar outside the window, a penguin biking across a deserted highway, or a chick poking its beak through the page–has a corresponding opposite, or “other side.” This book is an entertaining roller coaster of mini-experiences.
A new favorite on my “Bookshelf“.
