A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers - ADVISABLE

Jeffers, Oliver  A Child of Books  Illustrated by Sam Winston PICTURE BOOK  Candlewick Press, 2016.  $17.99  Content: G.  

A little girl goes for an adventure across the sea, in the forest, and over mountains.  She uses her imagination with the help of books and takes a little boy with her on her adventures.  She loves her world made of stories and her imagination, and it is available for everyone because your imagination is free.  

This book reads like a poem about being a book lover.  The illustrations are a mix of drawing, real pictures and text.  The text is used from different classics to make pictures, for example, the characters hike a mountain of text from the story of Peter Pan.  This is a great gift for book lovers.  My eight year old son wanted to hold the book himself after I had read it to him, so he could read the little text that is hidden in the pictures.
