New York Times best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers and fine artist Sam WinstonÂ¡Â¯s lyrical picture book inspires 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 boyÂ¡Â¯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 WinstonÂ¡Â¯s typographical landscapes shaped from excerpts of childrenÂ¡Â¯s classics and lullabies, A Child of Books is a stunning prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories Â¡Âª an immersive and unforgettable reading experience that readers will want to pass on to others.
