Luke's Way of Looking by Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley is an award-winning story that celebrates what it means to be different.

All the boys in Luke's class see things the same way except for Luke, who has his own special way of looking. Luke feels as if he doesn t fit in. And then one day he discovers a place that feels like home. Suddenly, the whole world changes.

With vibrant, surreal images, Luke's Way of Looking, which won Honour Book in the 2000 CBCA Awards, is a fascinating exploration of a boy learning to believe in his own special individuality.
