From The World That Loved Books, by Stephen Parlato:

"There once was a world where everyone loved books, even the animals.

Everyone loved to read so much that when they read their book, they became what they read.

A man reading about flowers... became flowers.

A man reading about insects and bugs became insects and bugs.

A rabbit reading about turtles became turtles, his perfect little cottontail now a sea turtle's flipper."
