Overview
Books contain countless tales but what if Book told its "own "story? From clay tablets to e-readers, here is a quirky, kid-friendly look at the book.
Books are one of humankind s greatest forms of expression, and now Book, in a witty, idiosyncratic voice, tells us the inside story. A wonderfully eccentric character with strong opinions and a poetic turn of phrase, Book tells of a journey from papyrus scrolls to medieval manuscripts to printed paper and beyond pondering, along the way, many bookish things, including the evolution of the alphabet, the library (known to Egyptians as "the healing place of the soul"), and even book burning. With bold, black-and-white illustrations by Neil Packer, "Book "is a captivating work of nonfiction by one of England's leading poets."
