Imagine a world where the sky becomes the Earth; where a waterfall freefalls to become dancing women; where you can cut mountains out of curtains, and ships sail into the sky. This amazing world is what Rob Gonsalves has created. His vision inspires and astounds—and he wants to share that vision with you.
With stunning illustrations that stretch the limits of the imagination, this fourth installment in the Imagine a… series explores a world that is boundless and beautiful, inviting you to imagine a world of possibilities—to imagine this world.
Imagine a World is a mesmerizing picture book from Canadian illustrator Rob Gonsalves. I was immediately impressed by his ability to create optical illusions that truly spark the imagination.
Each turn of the page offers up a discovery, a spread of beautiful art that is so much more than it first appears to be. This is a truly gorgeous book.
Each spread is accompanied by inspirational text but I was honestly so taken in by the artwork that I had to go back and re-read the text to take it in.
Fallen autumn leaves are transformed into swirls of monarch butterflies, open books become a row of doorways, and a high waterfall cascades into a troupe of dancers as it reaches the bottom.
This is a wonderful book to spark the imaginations of young readers and adults alike!
