‘A Child Of Books’ Is Out Now!

A child Of Books is out now! Written and Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston and published by Walker Books- this beautiful book is perfect for encouraging imagination in yourself and your little ones!

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 she invites him to come away with her 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 lies ahead of him… But who will be next?

Praise for the book:

 A gorgeous, innovative musing on the power of storytelling…a masterpiece.”
– SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL


“ Jeffers’s mostly understated illustrations are elegant, but also thoughtfully complement the illustrated typography.”
– NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“A fresh and fascinating collaboration between two gifted masters”
