This New York Times bestselling duo has teamed up for the first time to bring you How to Read a Book, a poetic and beautiful journey about the experience of reading.

Kwame Alexander's evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet's lush artwork come together to take readers on a sensory journey between the pages of a book. How to Read a Book has received three starred reviews!

A funny-looking sheep who wears a tattered wool coat and has long, dreadfully decaying teeth. Wooliam, being well read, thinks he recognizes their new acquaintance ... could it be the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing?
