A Child of Books

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

A little girl sails across the sea of her imagination to ask a little boy to come away with her to find stories again, worried that some people in the world have forgotten them. The children travel together over the mountains of make-believe, get lost in the forests of fairy tales and sleep in clouds of song, ending up in a house of invention: a book, where anyone at all can come.

A stunning art book that uses text from classic children's stories as part of the illustration, this picture book is also a celebration of the power of story. A beautiful collaboration between visual artist Sam Winston and renowned children's author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers has resulted in a timeless book that will inspire and enthral.
