Make Way For Books"You can read a book more than once, you know. You might even find a book inside the book...When you read a book again and let your imagination take over, it can take you to new stories, so it's like a book inside the book!"
Thus begins a celebration of the power of imagination. This book unfolds as a dream might unfold for a child picturing a scene from a story and then imagining, "what if?" It leads to beautiful places, offers unusual perspectives of usual things, and challenges ordinary thinking to become extraordinary. Rich, dreamlike illustrations capture the glorious adventure this girl discovers by daring to think beyond the pages of her books. For every reader who needs inspiration.
Publisher SummaryThere's a story inside every story, and a book inside every book. Every time you read you can find something new. But that only happens if you wish . . .
This marvelous fantasy, illustrated by the internationally acclaimed Robert Ingpen, will have children re-reading their favorite stories and daring to travel inside the pictures as they discover that books are for more than just reading.
A strange man and a flying horse teach Willow that when she re-reads a book her imagination can show her brand new stories.
