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?
Today we are thrilled to be partnering with Waterstones to reveal the trailer for A Child of Books, the stunning new picture book from New York bestselling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers and fine artist Sam Winston. A Child of Books is a lyrical picture book and a homage to the power of stories that will inspire readers of all ages to create, to question, to explore, and to imagine.
Combining elegant images and 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. We are delighted to share the trailer with you all!
