Happy publication day to A Child of Books

We are wishing a very happy publication day to A Child of Books, the highly anticipated collaboration between Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston.

I am a Child of Books. I come from a world of stories, and upon my imagination, I float.

This inspiring tale is the story of a little boy who makes a very bookish friend. Together they go on a lyrical trip through literary landscapes created from illustration and typography, and discover the joy of reading.

Praise for A Child of Books:

An ingenious, confident, and pretty cool exploration of literary delight. Kirkus Reviews

We can forget sometimes just how much picture books are works of art: this is a reminder of how stunning they can be. The Irish Times

It’s a hymn of books, reading and stories, a unique reading experience and an inspirational gift for book lovers young and old. The Bookseller
