"Open this book" or "Don’t open this book!" You have to choose whether to relax in the land of familiar everyday pleasures or dare to explore the realm of monsters, fairies and fantastic beasts. This beautiful dual folding picture book opens out into a concertina and comes in its own box. It is the result of collaboration between the Lebanese author Fatima Sharafeddine and the Iranian illustrator Fereshteh Najafi. The text is gentle and poetic in the land of the everyday and bouncy and jokey in the land of scary fantasy. The illustrations, on the one side in restful colours and on the other in vibrant hues, are full of details to discover. It received a special jury mention in the New Horizons category of the 2014 BolognaRagazzi Awards.
