9780763687830: Near, Far: A Minibombo Book

From up close and far away, things can look so different. Can you guess what animals you're looking at as they zoom in, then zoom back out?

No words are needed in this striking and colorful exploration of animal shapes. Bold graphic forms create a playful exercise in visual perception. At first glance, that green bump might be a grassy hill. But we're too close to be sure. Step back (turn the page) to see a little more. Now there are two green loopy humps. What could it be? Turn one more page to reveal — of course, the squiggles of a snake! Preschoolers will see animals in a new way when they look from both near and far.

About the Author:

Silvia Borando works as a visual designer for Studio Tiwi, where she loves to explore her great passion for color. She also heads up minibombo, a children's publishing house based in Italy that brings together a love of stories, illustration, and interactivity to create innovative graphic picture books. She lives in Italy.

Review:

Originally published by Italy's Minibombo, this wordless picture book is both a playful exploration of perspective and a goofily amusing animal guessing game...Stylish, charming, and lots of fun.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Each animal is a delightful surprise, staring smugly out at the audience. The rear endpapers feature more, and perhaps different, sets of curious eyes. Borando aims for a high level of visual acuity and sophistication, demanding sharp eyes and a vivid imagination. Grown-ups and little ones will want to experience the fun again and again. Entertaining and mind-expanding.
—Kirkus Reviews

This is not only an entertaining guessing game for children, but it's working their brains in some pretty powerful ways – asking them to discern meaning by assessing shape, line, composition, and negative space.
—Kirkus Reviews (blog)
