A Book, Book 2009
Macmillan, Apr 14, 2009 - Juvenile Fiction - 48 pages
A CHILD IN SEARCH OF HER STORY Caldecott medalist Mordicai Gerstein looks at books from a whole new angle. Once upon a time there was a family who lived in a book. All but the youngest had stories they belonged to--fighting fires, exploring space, entertaining in the circus--but she didn't have one yet.

A funny and touching celebration of books, stories, and finding yourself.
