It's a Book is a timely tribute to reading and books in the electronics age. The message is disguised as a conversation between a book-loving gorilla and a tech-obsessed donkey — with a kicker ending kids will love. Brought to you by Lane Smith — the author and illustrator of the best-selling John, Paul, George and Ben — the illustrations are simple and endearing, the tone understated and humorous.
Bottom line: Kids will love this timely take on books versus gadgets.
