Synopsis:

Among a family who lives in a book, the youngest daughter is the only one who doesn't have a story to belong to, so she sets out among fairy tales, adventures, mysteries, histories, science fiction, and others to track down her story. By the Calecott Medal winner of The Man Who Walked Between the Towers.


Review:

"While young children may have difficultly following the many twists of this story, they will certainly enjoy some of the jokes and the humorous illustrations. They may also challenge themselves to identify some of the fairy tales and stories in which the girl becomes involved."

School Library Journal, 05/01/2009

Book Description: Roaring Brook Press/BOMC. 1 Laminated Cover(s), 2009. hard. Book Condition: New. The Caldecott Medal–winning author of The Man Who Walked Between the Towers offers this brilliant sideways look at the art of storytelling and the making of books, for all ages. "Once, in a book by Mordicai Gerstein, published by Roaring Book Press, New York, there lived a family of characters," it begins. "There was a father and a mother, a girl and a boy, and some pets. When the book was closed it was night in the book, and the family slept." But the next page shows the family waking up, drawn as though the reader were looking down on miniature figures. Each goes off to his own story, except the girl, who doesn't know hers—and is soon horrified to look up out of the book and see the looming face of the reader watching her. But with the help of Mother Goose, a story detective, and others, she begins to understand her power to write her own destiny. 48. Bookseller Inventory # 31635
