Book Review


What a book truly is and where it transports readers is the message of this book. This message is shared in beautiful illustrations that carry the reader off into the magical land of words. The book begins with white pages on which are words. A word begins to stretch and expand until it covers a page and then begins to fill with color and art. Soon the images dominate the pages with the words that inspired them scattered around, among and in between everything. What is a book? It's an adventure, an emotion, it's . . . everything!
