Imagine a world where everyone loves books, and where people become what they read. And then... when the book is done, they become themselves again, only smarter. This is the world Stephen Parlato creates in The World That Loved Books, a world where even the animals love to read. Illustrated with gorgeous, intricately detailed collages, this dazzling picture book conveys a sense of joy and wonder about the natural world. It's also a powerful fable about reading books and how they change the reader in marvelous and unexpected ways.
In the world where all creatures read, marvelous transformations occur. Cats reading about mice become mice. Horses reading about fish become fish. Even a rhinoceros that reads about butterflies becomes butterflies. Illustrated with colourful, intricately detailed collages, this fable about how books can change us in marvelous and unexpected ways has captured the imaginations of many children and adults around the world.
There once was a world where everyone loved books, even the animals. Everyone loved to read so much that when they read their books, they became what they read. When they closed their books they became themselves again...only smarter.
