A love song to the enjoyment of reading and a feast full of intertextual links. Charlie Cook has a favourite book – in fact he has a whole shelf of them – and the characters within also love to read. Goldilocks is snuggled in Baby Bear’s bed with his favourite book, a bold and fearless knight fends off a dragon by reading aloud jokes to him. The design of each spread mimics the opening of a different kind of book reflected in small details such as water stains on the pages of a story about a pirate.
