The Book No One Ever Read
Breathing Books, 2017
From the dust jacket: “The Book No One Ever Read is written and illustrated by Cornelia Funke, author of Inkheart, Dragon Rider, and many others, and tells the story of a young book who yearns for a reader.
“It is a tale about the enchantment that can be found on printed pages. Parents and children alike will love discovering famous authors and illustrators lending their faces to the book characters, the heroes of the story.”
There’s nothing better than reading a library book about … a book in a library!! Funke is a favorite author here at our Library – she writes fiction for kittens, youth and young adults – all of it wonderful! And this book is no exception – I love how every creature in the book is a book (except for a scary orange cat!) and how just about all the objects have faces. It’s fun trying to guess which book is which author – I only guessed three and it was only on the second reading did I figure out who the young book named Morry was. This is a wonderful way to remind kittens and adults alike of the trans-formative power of reading good books. Love, love, love!!!
Rating 5 out of 5 paws because of gorgeous and creative illustrations and a unique story line!
