Lookybook Bids Adieu

I'm not sure what happened but I got this in my email tonight:

Regrettably, we have come to the last page in our adventure together. Thank you for your enthusiasm, support, and patronage.There’s a brand new frontier ahead. Please continue to support the creators and publishers of fine children’s picture books by exploring all the new and inventive ways they will be brought to you.
So long from the Lookybook crew.
—Craig Frazier
Lookybook CEO/Founder

Some of you may remember that Lookybook was a fantastic UK-based book community built around children's picture books that you could interactively flip through.

It was named one of Time's 50 Best Websites of 2008.

Update: Lookybook closed simply due to lack of resources.


  1. Yes - I was so surprised when I got the email! Any idea what happened? Back when you (or someone) mentioned Looky, I had sent the link to everyone at school! The kids were enjoying it! Oh well...

  2. "Lookybook is closed simply due to lack of resources."

  3. What a shame that Lookybook closed due to lack of resources. also has multimedia children's picture books that have animated illustrations, read along to the story or click on a word to hear it spoken. A great way of getting kids reading more.
