With an oversized book clutched to his chest, one small reader visits a variety of exotic locales from sunny safari to frozen north and outer space in A Place to Read, by Leigh Hodgkison. Simple, rhythmic verses accompanied by boldly patterned collage-style drawings show an increasingly frustrated lad and his growing entourage complete with lion, polar bear, and alien as he comes to a delightful conclusion about where best to enjoy his book.
