If I Were a Book
|Author:||Jose Jorge Letria|
This sweet celebration of the magic and wonder of books will delight readers of all ages. Andre Letria's whimsical illustrations of a book as a kite, a tent, a ship and more are paired with Jose 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 moun-taintop 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 begin--ning 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.
