The Children Who Loved Books

The Children Who Loved Books
Written and illustrated by Peter Carnavas
New Frontier £11.99
ISBN: 978-1912076529

Humorous illustrations in simple shapes of bold colour, portray a family who don't have a car or a house, just a small caravan, but they do have books - hundreds of them. But the day comes when there are just too many books and they have to go. The family find it very hard to live without the joy of reading and sharing stories, until they discover a special place where there are all the books they need. This picture book is a heart-warming celebration of families, libraries and how stories connect us all.
Louise Stothard
