Description

In a world dazzled by the latest gadgets and mesmerized by Internet videos, the humble book seems like the most ordinary thing that could be. And perhaps it is--until you learn to look closer . . . and closer . . . and closer . . . and you're suddenly in a world that only you can imagine. With soft, warm storytelling and stunning, whimsical illustrations, Book embarks the reader on an imaginative journey through the literary lands of fact and fiction, a world where passwords, viruses, and broken screens can't stop a young boy's earnest quest for truth. Join in this celebration of literature, scrape the skies of opportunity, traverse the forests of what-could-be, free the powers of knowledge, and discover once again why the humble book is anything but ordinary.

Review quote

"Thoughtful, poetic phrases are well-matched by mixed-media artwork . . . One of the prettiest paeans to the codex in recent memory."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The reader is entranced and enchanted by the imaginary world of the reader to be found in books . . . Book is a winning presentation of the enduring value of books (as opposed to other media for readers), enhanced by truly magical illustrations that encompass a trip to Fairyland and back."
--Midwest Book Review

" . . . A beautiful, wonderful title . . . for a reading time about the wonder of books."
--Cindy Mitchell, Library Teacher
