Synopsis:
A CHILD IN SEARCH OF HER STORY Caldecott medalist Mordicai Gerstein looks at books from a whole new angle.

Once upon a time there was a family who lived in a book. All but the youngest had stories they belonged to--fighting fires, exploring space, entertaining in the circus--but she didn't have one yet. Walking through all the possibilities of story types Mordicai Gerstein presents her quest in unique and changing perspectives: readers look down into the books below at the characters in their worlds. A funny and touching celebration of books, stories, and finding yourself.

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
