The Best Book in the World by Rilla

The Best Book in the World by Rilla

Regular price $11.00 Sale

A funny picture book that encourages kids to read with stunning illustrations and a rather surprising ending.


If you found the best book in the world, would you stop reading? Could you stop reading? If you had homework to do, or dinner to get through, could you put the book down? On a train to the zoo or on a flight to Kalamazoo, would that break the spell? If in a forest you walked, while scary monsters stalked . . . would that be enough? If you'd crossed a desert that baked or were swept off by a river that snaked, would you even take a break? If every animal in the land were to be led by a big band, in a grand parade in your honor made . . . would you put the book down?

What could possibly be so good about a book? Well, open me up and find out for yourself!

Rilla Alexander's story is conveyed through her superb artwork making this an unforgettable and magical tale that encourages children to read. The Best Book in the World draws young readers into the richly rewarding world of books.
