The Children Who Loved Books

by Peter Carnavas

Angus and Lucy are siblings in a family who don’t have much. No television. No car. Not even a house – just a caravan. But they have hundreds of books, stacked and piled everywhere. And when their dad gets rid of the books, they soon learn how much they miss them.

With touching illustrations and simple prose, The Children Who Loved Books reminds us that we really only need two things to be happy: books and each other.
