Has anyone actually read Maurice Gee's Going West?

I've not read or heard of it but this video is brilliant. I love the paper/book coming to life! Thanks for sharing!

Nope, but I thought this video was umber-cool. I guess I should probably look up the book... :)

Ha! I meant "uber-cool." I love it when I just invent words... Lol

Never read the book, but that video was awesome! I hope it wasn't a real book they turned into popup shapes.

Isn't it the coolest thing?

It appears to be an older book, so I'm also impressed the Book Council isn't promoting something brand-new: that makes a change from the way things are done here, for sure.

I could probably get my hands fairly easily on one of Gee's children's books, but not Going West. And there were too many distractions for me to tell from the reading whether I'd actually like the book.

Extrordinary bit of artwork using a book. They certainly believe in the book. I'll look into it.
