'Ruben’s dreams were of places that made no sense to him.

'Places that didn’t exist. At least not anymore.

'Ruben lives in a safe place in a city that takes everything and gives nothing back. He begins to feel that he is in danger and ventures to Block City where he meets Koji. She too has been hiding from the dangers of the industrial city and its excesses. Ruben and Koji realise that if they combine their knowledge of how the city works they can find a way to escape . . . together.

'I immediately knew that Ruben was a tale to treasure the moment it landed in my hands. It is an extraordinary picture book; complex, evocative, and visually stunning from the intriguing front cover that draws the reader inside to cautiously follow Ruben into his world, to the back cover adorned with a symbolic single lock. What lies inside?' (Introduction)
