A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston


New York Times best-selling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers and fine artist Sam Winston deliver a lyrical picture book inspiring 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 boy’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 Winston’s typographical landscapes shaped from excerpts of children’s classics and lullabies, A Child of Books is a stunning prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories—an immersive and unforgettable reading experience that readers will want to pass on to others.


My thoughts
This book is beautiful. If like me you've been a bookworm since you were tiny the story will be all too familiar as it discusses that special world bookworms inhabit and how stories shape the world we live in giving us infinite worlds to explore and escape to.

I particularly love the art work which combines illustrations, images of books and passages of texts all integrated to make clever pictures (eg text used to make up the sea or clouds or a monster).

A really beautiful book for bookworms young and old

I’ve been sitting on the fence for awhile when it comes to whether or not to start a pro-health, pro-food, pro-recovery (I’m a former bulimic) blog where I can say whatever I want and post a plethora of breakfast photos without getting judged. You’ve inspired me to get serious about it. Also, did I mention I want to cook every recipe on your blog? Like, all at once
