A beautifully produced, small-format jacketed hardback with simple illustrations that are whimsical yet humorous. This book asks what is a book? It celebrates books and reading. Although told from a childs view, it captures the value and magic of books felt by all voracious readers, and is a perfect gift for book-lovers of all ages. A book is 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 its 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.
