Books can take you anywhere:
across the golden desert sand,
over the silver waves of the sea,
up into the empty world of space,
under the foamy waterfall.
Books can change your life;
they can make your cat a vicious tiger,
your room a dangerous forest,
your friends secret spies.
Books can change you:
once you’ve lived a thousand other lives,
you are different from before.
Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon,
the world is new, and so are you.
