I had the chance to check out a few more of his books after that. One of my favorites is definitely The Bored Book. A brother and a sister are at their grandfather's house, bored out of their minds. They have no technology with which to play. All he has are books. But when he shows them a secret passageway behind one of the bookshelves, the children come across their own Bored Book and are whisked away on all kinds of adventures.
What is most unique about this book is that the entire story is told through pictures. There are no words. But its message is powerful - as long as you have books, you will never be bored.
David Michael Slater is also the author of the popular Sacred Books series for young adults.
