Thomas is on vacation at the beach with his parents. But when they take a nap, he’s bored and decides to walk around. After watching the folks around him, he realizes it’s late. He can’t figure out which way to go to get back to his parents, when he suddenly finds an abandoned book.
The second book in a book is the identical text of what has taken place at the beach, but this time he’s at a ski resort. When the same thing happens, he finds a book that casts him and his family in space. Finally, his parents find him and they all go home.
The Book in the Book in the Book is a unique adventure in three different settings. Children will get a kick out of seeing how the exact same words work in each scene. This fun read will be a hit with kids.
