Une petite fille vogue sur une mer de mots et arrive ? la maison d'un gar?on qu'elle invite ? partir pour une aventure extraordinaire.

Cet album pr?sente les magnifiques oeuvres typographiques de Sam Winston construites ? partir d'extraits des grands classiques litt?raires et les fusionne aux illustrations de l'artiste ?m?rite Oliver Jeffers. Les enfants exploreront des for?ts de contes de f?es, des montagnes et des nuages de chansons pour enfin d?couvrir ensemble les richesses inestimables de l'imagination. Un monde rempli de magie s'ouvre d?sormais ? eux.

L'enfant des livres est une ode ? l'immense richesse de la lecture et du plaisir de partager des histoires.

In this inspiring and lyrical picture book, a little girl sails her raft across a sea of words to arrive at the house of a small boy. Once there, she invites him to come away with her on an adventure where they can journey through forests of fairy tales, mountains of make-believe and clouds of song. Guided by his new friend, the boy unlocks his unique imagination. Now a lifetime of magic and adventure lies ahead of him. But who will be next?

A tribute to all that books can do and all that books can become. L'enfant des livres is a timely manifesto for the infinite rewards of reading and sharing the enjoyment of stories.
