Product Description

Product Description

It was a normal day for Brian the Book, until he found that his friends were in danger. Follow our hero and help him unravel the mystery of the book-threatening "reading machine". What does it want? Where does it come from? And will Brian be able to protect his friends from its hungry jaws?

Can Electronic Books and Paper Books Live Together?

That's the question underlying this colored picture book by André Klein. Breaking down abstract concepts to a visual level, this book illustrates the current debate around the culture of reading and makes it accessible for both young and old readers. Are ebooks and e-readers posing a serious threat to libraries and bookshops? Are paper books the superior choice for consuming written works? Follow Brian The Book's journey and rethink your own reading habits.

This picture book for the young and young at heart contains...

- hand-drawn illustrations by the author
- full color (also compatible with black & white devices)
- simple sentences for early readers
- no DRM-restrictions (read on any device, in any format)

Best book I've read since 2nd grade. I got this book expecting a long drawn out boring picture book, but this book has changed the way I look at life. Thank you Brian the Book.

Cute. Very relevant for this era when babies learning to read will one day wonder, "what were hard back books and how and why did they disappear?"

Brian is a very happy, good book. When he gets to the library the shelves are all empty. He finds the books at the dock. They describe a horrible machine that eats batteries for breakfast. Brian sits out to find this machine. Find out what lesson he learns when he finally meets the e-reader machine.

This would be a really great bedtime read for children. It's relevant because ebooks are becoming the new trend, and Brian the Book is a good place to start.
