Drum roll, please! Today we are thrilled to reveal the cover of A Child of Books, the stunning new picture book from Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston.
A Child of Books is a
lyrical picture book that will inspire readers of all ages to create, to
question, to explore, and to imagine.
A little girl sails her raft across a sea of words, arriving at the
house of a small boy and calling him away 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 and adventure lies ahead of him... but who will be next?
Combining elegant images by New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers and
fine artist Sam Winston’s typographical landscapes, shaped from excerpts of
children’s classics and lullabies, A Child of Books is a stunning
prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories. It's an immersive
and unforgettable reading experience that readers will want to pass on
to others, and we can't wait to share more with you over the coming months!
You can head over to The Guardian for the official cover reveal and to go behind the scenes with Oliver and Sam.
A Child of Books is publishing on 1st September 2016.
