    PreS-Gr 1—Mack's latest picture book is told with only two words, but they convey an array of emotions, including excitement, surprise, anger, and sadness. A playful gorilla tries to get a boy's attention by flinging around books and stepping on them. But no matter how many times (or ways) the gorilla says, "Look" (14), the boy keeps his eyes on the television. As the gorilla's behavior becomes increasingly unruly, the boy's exclamations of "Look out!" become serious. When the gorilla accidentally breaks the TV, the boy shouts "Out! Out! Out!" but then discovers the joy of reading, and shares his discovery with the gorilla. "Look. Look! Look! Look!" he says while pointing to the gorilla and Tarzan characters on the page. Mixed-media illustrations and alternating font styles are set against different colored and textured backdrops. This is a fun read-aloud that will have children wanting to look and look again.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
