This sweet celebration of the magic and wonder of books will delight readers of all ages.
André Letria’s whimsical illustrations of a book as a kite, a tent, a ship and more are paired with José Jorge Letria’s thoughtful musings on the joys of reading. In the hands of this internationally acclaimed father-and-son duo, a book becomes a mountaintop with a spectacular vista ( If I were a book, I’d be full of new horizons ), and an endless staircase of imagination ( If I were a book, I would not want to know at the beginning how my story ends ). Seamlessly weaving together art and prose, this petite tribute to a reader’s best friend makes a timeless addition to every bookshelf.
José Jorge Letria is an award-winning author whose books have been translated into over a dozen languages. He lives in Portugal.
