A Book is a Book

By Jenny Bornholdt
Illustrated by Sarah Wilkins

A beautifully produced, small-format jacketed hardback with simple illustrations that are whimsical yet humorous.

This book asks ‘what is a book?’ It celebrates books and reading. Although ‘told’ from a child’s view, it captures the value and magic of books felt by all voracious readers, and is a perfect gift for book-lovers of all ages.

  • Has appeal as a gift book for book-loving children and adults
  • Potential as a starting-point for discussions about what books and stories are
  • Jenny Bornholdt is one of New Zealand’s top poets
