Good to read a book about how letters fall from sky. In a place where there were no books, once letters start falling from sky. People collect the letters and thus, they bring treasury of books. Wonderful book for the kids.

“Stories are wonderful, enjoyable, and scrumptious things. In the old days, they were served on thin plates called pages. You ate them with your eyes. And they didn't go down to your tummy, like normal food. No, they went into a dream machine inside your head.” 5 likes
