This is what the timid Louise learns one wet day, when she ventures into a library. She discovers new worlds in a variety of books and fairytales. Each cover opens to reveal something unknown. She exits taking with her new found views on what is real, and what can be learnt and discovered within the pages of a book.
Told in rhyming verse with illustrations in watercolour, gouache, pencil and crayon, this poignant story with themes of fear and imaginings in children, is well-portrayed through the full page illustrated images, and precise text.
