This is so fun and, although it’s not new, is definitely going to be stocked in the shop for Christmas. I love how inventive books can be, which make them infinitely better than e-books, in my opinion.

This book made my week when we received a copy at work, and it’s now our ‘Book of the Month’. It’s a very simple and very relevant picture book about how technology is making books redundant (to some). A donkey pesters his friend, a hat-wearing ape, about what features his book has, not understanding that it doesn’t need to be able to send tweets or texts or emails, because ‘IT’S A BOOK!’. Eventually the donkey gets caught up in reading and forgets about his previous insistence on technology. It’s a lovely book, with great illustrations and wit. Although it seems to be aimed at children, this would make a fab gift for anyone who loves books, and laments the rise of the e-book etc. (It’s not available as for the kindle, or other e-readers. Which makes me happy).
