Description

Join two young children as they begin an adventure through a world of books in this story-within-a-bedtime-story. This metered read-aloud pays homage to classic children's literature: readers of all ages will love searching for characters they recognize from fairy tales and beloved picture books amongst the pages. Spiders weave words and mythical dragons soar as the children travel through magical lands guided by the rhythm and rhyme of acclaimed author Margriet Ruurs. Little ones will want to cuddle closer and settle in for a delightful journey before heading off to sleep themselves.

Editorial Reviews

“Sweet and richly detailed... Wei’s rich, complex mixed media illustrations make the story’s concept shine, totally capturing the magic of imagination, while Ruurs’s simple, rhythmic text pulls everything together.”

School Library Journal

“A book that parents, primary teachers and librarians can use to introduce a discussion of the world of children's books. [Children] will enjoy the game of identifying the literary references hidden in the lines.”
