The Bridges

A moving celebration of the power of books and reading from bestselling author and illustrator, Tom Percival, creator of Ruby’s Worry.

Mia feels alone; so alone that it’s as if she lives on a small island, far out to sea. But then one day, Mia is given a book – the first she has ever been able to call her own. As Mia reads the book, bridges appear and her island fills with colour and life. And the more Mia reads, the stronger the bridges become, opening up a world of connection and hope…

Because a book can take you anywhere…

Celebrate the power of books and reading in this moving picture book by Tom Percival, author of Ruby’s Worry and The Invisible, among many more.
