Look up! From the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it...

A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit and existential silliness, celebrated picture-book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.
Industry Reviews
'A new Jon Klassen is always a treat, and this deadpan gem will make you simultaneously laugh out loud and marvel at his visual wizardry.'
The Bookseller

'Son (4): I really liked this book. It was really funny. I like how the animals shouted at each other lots. My favourite character was the one from space. I want to read it again. 82 stars out of 5. Dad: I thoroughly enjoyed this book as an adult and may have to borrow it from my son to take into my class! Klassen, well done! You've gained three more fans from this story who are certainly going to try and purchase your other books.'

'It is beautifully illustrated and the characters made me smile. It is a simple story on one hand yet can provoke lots of thoughts and discussion about a number of issues including relationships, fate and bad feelings. I can't wait to give it to my niece to read then chat to her about it afterwards. I would probably then ask for it back so that it sits on my bookshelf and not hers!'

'His illustrations are a delight, Klassen’s style is so distinct. His characters are full, witty and colourful. […] I will treasure this book.'
