A beautiful, poignant and timely manifesto for the myriad rewards of reading and sharing the enjoyment of stories. Winner of the prestigious international Bologna Ragazzi Award for Fiction 2017From New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers, creator of The Day the Crayons Quit and Lost and Found, and typographical artist Sam Winston comes an exceptional new picture book. In this inspiring, lyrical tale about the rewards of reading and sharing stories, a little girl sails her raft "across a sea of words" to arrive at the house of a small boy.

There she invites him to come away with her on an adventure.

Guided by his new friend, the boy unlocks his imagination and a lifetime of magic lies ahead of him...

But who will be next? Elegant illustrations by Oliver Jeffers are accompanied by Sam Winston's astonishing typographical landscapes, beautifully shaped from excerpts of children's classics including Treasure Island, Little Women and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, creating a gorgeous gift book perfect for readers of all ages, and this year's must-have Christmas gift.
