A great little book

The Good Little Book - Kyo Maclear, Marion Arbona

A story about a boy and a book he didn't think would matter to him.


Ever seen that moment in life when a "reluctant reader" finds that book. The one that just clicks.  That finally makes them forget how hard reading is-because it is (See: Proust & the Squid); that becomes their almost constant companion; that opens the world of possibility and exploration that other Readers have been trying to tell them about.  This is a book about that book.  But what happens when that book is lost...? 


Lyrically written and intricately illustrated, this book has a long and glorious future in many a library collection and bedside table.  The joy of reading has never felt so uplifting.  Also a subtle lesson in book care.  Book jackets unite!
