Just a Story



Reading is wild, dangerous... fantastic! The possibilities are endless, the perils enormous--good thing it's just a story.

A boy happens upon a discarded book that transforms a library into an escalating series of near misses and close encounters with dastardly pirates, a herd of scooter-riding elephants, a big blue whale, and is that an alien in an Elvis wig?

But surprise, he escapes without a scratch, because it's just a story...

With an exuberant art style reminiscent of newspaper comic strips, illustrator Jeff Mack brings imagination to life in this riotous tale about the power of reading.

About the author

Jeff Mack

Jeff Mack studied hard, practised much and illustrated many books written by other authors. Even though at first his own books weren't published, now he has a lovely backlist of titles to be proud of. His most recent picture book (published in the USA) was Duck in the Fridge and he has also written several chapter books for young and middle readers.

Jeff lives in Western Massachusetts where he continues to write and illustrate books, paint murals and visit schools and libraries to talk about his work.
