About this deal

There are clever images such as a photo of a paper forms a sail for a raft, spines of books (where you can see the paper pages) form trees in a forest. The beauty and power of children’s books is the subject of A Child of Books, which reads as much as a poetic manifesto as it does a story. This hardback book is an interesting read and will capture the hearts of many adults but I don't think many children will enjoy this without a lot of explanation. There are drawings of the young girls and boy along with printed images or photographs and actual text making up pictures. His distinctive paintings have been exhibited in multiple cities, including the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Brooklyn Museum New York.

It is a lovey story and very focused on a love of books, which is something that we both hope to instill into our child.

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. In this inspiring, lyrical tale about the rewards of reading and sharing stories, a little girl sails her raft "across a sea of words" to arrive at the house of a small boy. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors.
