Ask a child "What is a book?" and you may get some unexpected answers - like those included in this whimsically philosophical tribute to reading. Lovely to share with a child, and a perfect gift for book-lovers of all ages.

A beautifully produced, small-format jacketed hardcover with simple illustrations that are whimsical yet humorous.

A book to read.
A book belongs in a library, on a bookshelf, in a bookshop, in your house.
A story belongs wherever a story belongs.
If it's Sunday and raining, a book is the perfect thing. Even a small book, because boredom can be very big.
You can read a book while you walk, but you have to be careful not to bump into things.

An ingenious, witty, beautiful little book. For anyone who loves books and reading, definitely not just for kids. I am now a fan of Sarah Wilkins' illustrations, and Jenny Bornholdt is brilliantly concise and funny too.
