Beautiful and sublime, this charming children’s book takes the reader on an unforgettable journey back and forth and upside down in its pages. Each page is a clever, eye-pleasing symphony of black and white, each page capable of being turned upside down to form a very different image. It is a startling and startlingly picturesque example of what heights a talented illustrator is capable of achieving.

A train ride turns into a study of optics. The artist rendered all images in black and white so that when turned upside down a new set of images appears, and the story can continue. There is not much to the story, as it is just a description of all the sights seen, but the images are brilliantly done, making this a one of a kind book, and well worth looking at.
