The Best Book in the World by Rilla Alexander

A wordless picture book that encourages kids to read with stunning illustrations and a rather surprising ending.

Reviews

-The pictures quickly and cleverly move from depicting relatively realistic reading nooks to the places readers go in their imaginations... excitement reigns, right up to the gently mind-bending metafictive moment that concludes the book.- -Kirkus Reviews -Rilla has crafted a story about the power of books to take us places, but in her text it's as if she has written an incantation to breathe the words alive.- - Matthew Winner for the Busy Librarian -A chic encouragement to read . . . With each page, the illustrations become wilder and more thrilling.- - The Wall Street Journal -Creative visuals use saturated colors and graphic shapes to cleverly show a reader making her way through the story. She walks with her nose in her book, following wherever it leads--through the streets, to the bus stop, wnd then far away into her imagination. Each high-contrast spread offers plenty of details and discoveries to explore.- - School Library Journal The pictures quickly and cleverly move from depicting relatively realistic reading nooks to the places readers go in their imaginations... excitement reigns, right up to the gently mind-bending metafictive moment that concludes the book. - Kirkus Reviews

A chic encouragement to read . . . With each page, the illustrations become wilder and more thrilling. - The Wall Street Journal
