‘How To Live Forever’ by Colin Thompson

Live‘How To Live Forever’ by Colin Thompson was published 20 years ago – but is well worth checking out.

Peter and his family live among the Quinces in the cookery section of a mystical library – and at night, when the library comes to life, Peter sets out to find one missing volume: ‘How To Live Forever’. The art work in this book is fabulous. You’ll spend as much time looking at the pictures as reading the short text.

This could be shared this with KS1 children and older. It’s definitely a book to read and explore with a partner – and could provide lots of ideas for writing.
