The Magic Bookcase (minedition Classic) (Hardcover)

The Magic Bookcase (minedition Classic) By Robert Ingpen Cover Image
Not Available


A celebration of books, storytelling, and reading from one of the greatest living children's book creators

Internationally acclaimed illustrator and author Robert Ingpen spins a fantastic spell in this imaginative book. The illustrations are taken from a massive mural he donated to the National Library of Australia in 2018. It depicts a bookshelf without books. Instead, the shelves are filled with characters from classical stories who, through the imagination of the illustrator, are borrowed from the pages of books where they traditionally belong.
