"I am a child of books," a little girl declares. "I come from a world of stories." And so begins this enchanting tale of a little girl sailing away on a sea made, literally, of words as are many other things in her book-centric world. Words are fashioned into the shapes of mountains, a monster, a dark cave, and more as the girl is joined by a boy on an adventure that dramatically demonstrates the freedom of imagination. Jeffers and Winston s first collaboration is a celebration of the child s world, illustrated in sumptuous double-page spreads featuring explosions of images borrowed from unforgettable sources...Every one of its elements the haunting prose poem executed in hand- lettered words; the pictures done in watercolor, pencil, and digital collage; and the objects built from words borrowed from classic stories all work together toward a richly harmonious whole. An irresistible invitation to read.
