When You Open a Book (Hardcover)
"An enchanting adventure that captures the spirit of storytelling." --Julian Lennon
?"Two children dine with mermaids, swashbuckle with pirates, and ride on the shoulders of a giant in this beautiful tale about the transportive power of reading. The dreamlike illustrations use a broad palette of bright colors and wispy textures to spark children's imaginations, encouraging them to crack open a book and enter a world of winged dragons, musical sea creatures, and mice hanging stars on the moon."--ForeWord Reviews, starred review
For you unlock magic that is hidden within,
and opening the cover is how you begin.
Oh, all the worlds and the places you'll see;
when you hold a book, you hold the key.
When You Open a Book is a stunning ode to the world's grandest adventure of all: reading a book. Gorgeous artwork by Italian illustrator Sara Ugolotti depicts dragons, forests, pirates, merfolk, lollipop trees, lemonade tides, and more as a child journeys through page upon page of the written word.
