The Countryside Game by Herve Tullet

The Countryside Game is a pure concept board book with no words — only fully illustrated pages that are styled like flaps to give a layered view of a countryside, almost like a pop-up book.

As you turn the pages, you seem to be travelling deeper into the landscape, to the destination designed by the author, passing a forest, a field with sheep, a house and mountains along the way. But just when you think you’ve reached your destination, you are given the option to travel back by working your way backwards; this time, the same landscape is seen at night, making the familiar seem unfamiliar once more.
