A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers Book Review

A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Release Date: September 6, 2016

I am a child of books. I come form a world of stories. A little girl sails her raft across a literal sea of words and goes on an adventure into a world of stories and words.

An absolutely beautiful book that uses typography like arc, interlacing words into mountains, oceans, and trees. There is a loose plot, but this is a story mostly about the power of books on the imagination and the places that words can take you. Beautifully done, I expect to see this book earn a few accolades and I am a bit curious how young readers will respond to it.
