Just a Story
ages 3 - 7
2020, Neal Porter Books/Holiday House
Reading is wild, dangerous... fantastic! The possibilities are endless, the perils enormous--good thing it's just a story.
A boy happens upon a discarded book that transforms a library into an escalating series of near misses and close encounters with dastardly pirates, a herd of scooter-riding elephants, a big blue whale, and is that an alien in an Elvis wig?
But surprise, he escapes without a scratch, because it's just a story...
With an exuberant art style reminiscent of newspaper comic strips, illustrator Jeff Mack brings imagination to life in this riotous tale about the power of reading.
A gently humorous reading adventure."--Publishers Weekly
"The imaginative power of a story, brought to life. --Kirkus Reviews
