“I am a child of books. I come from a world of stories …”
So begins this lyrical tale of imagination, freedom and adventure in a world of story. Celebrated artist, illustrator and author Oliver Jeffers, has produced yet another great book to add to his list of original and inspiring stories. This time he’s teamed up with fine artist Sam Winston who cleverly weaves extracts from forty children’s classics in typographic landscapes throughout the book. There are so many wonderful details to discover. Even the stars on one page are teeny, tiny letters.
A wonderful book celebrating story and the magic of reading!
