Get Back in the Book!
When Danny, an aspiring young writer, and artist, writes his first book, the characters he created come magically to life and want to explore the world! How can Danny encourage them to return to the pages of his book so that you will read about them?

This extraordinary tale, within a tale, features stunning illustrations. More than transporting young readers to faraway places, “Get Back in the Book!” shows them the powerful and positive impact of books and storytelling.
