Synopsis: Book lovers of all ages can take an enchanted journey through a labyrinthine fantasy library filled with every book ever written, where the shelves come alive at night, like teeming miniature cities.  One night, a young boy who resides in a cookbook stumbles upon a long-lost file card for a book called How to Live Forever and sets off to find the missing volume.  Thus begins a journey through mystifying literary mazes in Colin Thompson's tour de force of wit, wisdom, and boundless imagination.

About the Author: Colin Thompson is fast becoming a cult.  His incredibly detailed pictures, packed with bizarre touches, worlds within worlds, and wondrous visual jokes, are addictive.  Colin's book Ruby , an international hit, was linked to a contest with a real vintage automobile as the prize.  His earlier titles include The Paper Bag Prince and Looking for Atlantis .  After leaving art school, and subsequently, the London School of Film Technique, Colin worked for a time at the BBC before moving to the Outer Herbrides, where he began twenty years of self-employment in ceramics.  Colin now works full time as an author and illustrator.
