A Child of Books
"New York Times "best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers and fine artist Sam Winston deliver a lyrical picture book inspiring readers of all ages to create, to question, to explore, and to imagine.
A little girl sails her raft across a sea of words, arriving at the house of a small boy and calling him away on an adventure. Through forests of fairy tales and across mountains of make-believe, the two travel together on a fantastical journey that unlocks the boy s imagination. Now a lifetime of magic and adventure lies ahead of him . . . but who will be next? Combining elegant images by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston s typographical landscapes shaped from excerpts of children s classics and lullabies, "A Child of Books "is a stunning prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories an immersive and unforgettable reading experience that readers will want to pass on to others."
