a story by Libby Gleeson;
illustrated by Freya Blackwood (US only)
Two children stumble across a red book lying on the ground. When they start turning the pages their dusty world begins to change: everyday objects become magical, the dreary landscape turns in a fantastical setting.
Freya Blackwood’s lyrical watercolors show how the magic of reading can transform reality: you can ride a chicken, float in a teacup, get lost in a forest of light poles and travel on an empty plastic bottle turned into zeppelin… And at the end of the wonderful voyage a underpriviliged community is united by the act of communal reading.
