9781406368987: My Name Is Book

"My name is Book and I'll tell you the story of my life." Non-fiction like you've never read it before!Quirky and humorous, part poetry, part reflection, this is the story of the book told by none other than ... BOOK! This extraordinary character begins by reminding us of his origins in oral story and clay tablets, then ponders on papyrus, parchment and paper, and on being a scroll who finally gets a spine. We see Book lovingly illuminated by monks in medieval monasteries, then witness the massive changes brought about by the invention of the printing press, and the coming of paperbacks and eBooks in the 20th century. But Book's not the straightforwardly chronological sort, and can't help musing - and those musings, whether they're on the evolution of the alphabet, libraries, book-burning or blurbs, are delightful and thought-provoking. Sixteen years of reflection and observation have gone into this charming title.

For Walker he has illustrated the magnificent Odyssey by Gillian Cross. Neil lives in London, NW1.

Review:

A charming and quite poetic 'autobiography' of the friendliest and most enduring manner of mankind's communication. * The Bookbag * Holds us spellbound as he takes us from stories round the campfire and cave paintings to the e-book. Simple, direct and conversational, this is a tale nevertheless told with wit, passion and ingenuity: the art that conceals art. It is supported by some equally brilliant black and white illustrations. * Books for Keeps * What a joy to find a children's book dedicated to, well, books! . . Facts, figures and poetry combine with Agard's lyrical style to create a book that should be treasured by audiences of all ages. * We Love This Book * An unusual, enjoyable and interesting read * The School Librarian * Delightful and thought provoking * Parent Talk * A delightful short work imaginatively illustrated with witty and elegant line drawings. It speaks directly to the reader, tracing its history from oral tradition to ebook, and is full of fascinating facts in short easy chapters. Great for schools or anyone fascinated to hear Book's own story. * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Read * An engrossing history. . . clever and unusual book. . . a wonderful introduction to how books - and reading - have evolved. * Parents in Touch * Informative and charming * Carousel *
