A Book by Mordecai Gerstein

Illustrated by Mordecai Gerstein.

Abstract: "Once in a book by Mordecai Gerstein ... there lived a family of characters." This is the tale of one little girl's search for her own story.

Roaring Brook, 2009.


  1. Definitely original, I love the way the illustrated characters interact with the reader -- I laughed out loud at a few parts, and couldn't wait to read through it again.

  2. This is a creative one! I like the first and last pages that are mostly black to give the impression that the book is closed and the characters are in the dark. I also think the shadows worked well to give the impression that you're looking down but they didn't hinder the enjoyment of the book and the images.
