Ask a child "What is a book?" and you may get some unexpected answers - like those included in this whimsically philosophical tribute to reading. Lovely to share with a child, and a perfect gift for book-lovers of all ages.
A beautifully produced, small-format jacketed hardcover with simple illustrations that are whimsical yet humorous.
A book to read.
A book belongs in a library, on a bookshelf, in a bookshop, in your house.
A story belongs wherever a story belongs.
If it's Sunday and raining, a book is the perfect thing. Even a small book, because boredom can be very big.
You can read a book while you walk, but you have to be careful not to bump into things.
