KOOB: The Backwards Book

By Anna Brett   Illustrated by Elle Ward   

Scholastic Inc | ISBN 9780545906623 Paperback
144 Pages | 6.5" x 9.86" | Ages 7 to 10

A hilarious creative book of activities that encourages readers to forget everything they know and just have fun!

KOOB is not your average book. It’s a backwards book! This quirky activity book that plays off the style of the hugely sucessful Wreck This Journal will challenge you to think outside of the box (and the page!) and try out a different perspective by reading the book upside down and back to front. Featuring wacky instructions on every page, from "Decode these secret instructions with a mirror" and "Write on this page with your toes," to "Draw an animal, cut it out, and attach a string to take it for a walk," KOOB is guaranteed to bring hours of fun and lots of laughs.

With a unique format, including pages that are cut on a diagonal slant and original, eye-grabbing 2-colour line illustrations, KOOB is a new spin on the traditional activity book that will appeal to kids (and adults!) of all ages.
