It's a Book!
A wry exchange between an IT-savvy donkey, a book-loving ape and a mouse forms this playful and light-hearted look at the role of books in our digital age. With a subversive and signature Lane Smith twist, this satisfying and perfectly executed picture book has something to say to children and adults alike about the importance and joy of reading.
Lane Smith is a bestselling author and illustrator. He is best known in the UK for his brilliantly quirky and silly collaborations with Jon Scieszka, in particular for the multi award-winning THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES (Puffin). Lane lives in a small town in rural Connecticut with his wife Molly, a picture book designer.
