Illustrated By: Tom Jellett
A child is reading when up comes a Gobbledygook. The Gobbledygook is making a mess of the books by eating them. The child tells the Gobbledygook that this is not what we do with books. The child then sets about taking the Gobbledygook on a journey through a wide selection of books.
This is a very simple book with a theme close to my heart, that books are to be devoured, enjoyed and can take you to some amazing places. It finishes up in a great place for parents, with the child tucked up in bed snoring. The illustrations are fun, there are plenty of colours but the general palette is muted rather than jumping off the page with brightness. It certainly has an appeal about it. The more I look at it the more I like it.
