Children's Book Review - A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers & Sam Winston

Tuesday, November 7, 2017-Reviewed by Vivian Ong, Marvellous Mother

What Vivian thinks...

A tale about a girl and a boy on an adventure in a world of stories, woven together with unique artwork resulted in this irresistible gem of a picture book. The impressive artwork merged texts from a total of forty treasured children's classics, images of real books and stunning illustrations. 

While my children and I were taken in by the story and gorgeous typographical landscapes, for me, it was extra special for it was also a nostalgic walk down memory lane, reminiscing about the books I grew up with and the worlds I entered and have long since abandoned.   

The various passages from children’s classics peppered throughout the book provided some fodder for me and my eldest child to discuss, and which I hope will inspire and encourage her to further explore and discover.

This is a wonderful book to demonstrate to children the power of their imaginations and the importance of stories. This is a beautiful book and one that I reckon will be loved by book lovers of all ages.
