Summary
From Oliver Jeffers and typographic fine artist, Sam Winston, comes an inspiring and lyrical picture book about a little girl who sails her raft 'across a sea of words' to arrive at the house of a small boy. There she invites him to come away with her on an adventure where they can journey through 'forests of fairy tales', 'across mountains of make-believe' and 'sleep in clouds of song.' The book features images by Jeffers and landscapes, crafted from excerpts from children's stories and lullabies, by Winston
