A Book is the unique story of a girl in a book trying to find her story.  She wanders through multiple genres to try them on, but none seem to fit her. 

The illustrations in this book are particularly fun and done from the perspective of a reader looking down at the top of a small world; the characters in turn often look up and discuss or address the reader. A great introduction to genre for a younger reader and an enjoyable story or read-aloud.
