    1. Reseña completa: anitavelabooksLibro me ha parecido muy original y me llamó mucho la atención que un libro te cuente la historia del libro, pintaba muy interesante y así ha sido. Además de que a la historia le acompañan ilustraciones junto con citas que lo hace más especial aún. Y esa combinación me ha gustado mucho porque lo veo muy atractivo para los niños y los no tan niños. Lo que más me ha gustado es la forma que tiene el autor de contarte la historia del libro porque lo hace co [...]


    2. Super book by John Agard about books: the history from papyrus to e-book; the tools to make them; the social impact of the printing press and much, much more. This is an engaging in-depth look at all things bookish filled with wonderful observations, clever artwork by Neil Packer, and thoughtful quotes from throughout history. I will recommend this to middle school and high school students who might enjoy a quick read about how books came to be and how important books are to life.


    3. Un libro increíble, inteligente y muy, muy curioso. Ha sido terminarlo y empezar a recomendárselo a gente de mi alrededor. Es algo arriesgado escribir un libro como si fueras un libro hablando de los libros. Pero el autor consigue hacerlo fantásticamente, ordenando los eventos de manera cronológica y con un encanto único. Además, la edición es de lujo, llena de citas e ilustraciones que acompañan perfectamente el contenido. ¡Maravilloso!


    4. Livre jeunesse sympathique, bien écrit, intéressant et stimulant sur l'histoire de l'écriture.


    5. Le doy 4 estrellas bien merecidas a Libro. Me encantan los libros para niños. La verdad me esperaba algo totalmente diferente, algo más como un cuento. Resultó ser la historia de cómo la literatura evolucionó hasta llegar al libro actual e incluso electrónico, contada de una manera divertida por el mismo libro, hablando en primera persona.Aunque sea un libro para niños me parece que cualquiera puede disfrutarlo, me resultó bastante informativo, aprendí muchísimo sobre la creación del [...]




    6. Short but interesting history of writing. I'm not sure how well this will go over with a younger audience, but as an adult reader I found it enjoyable enough.



    7. Book is a really different and interesting little read. It follows the history of the written word from stone tablet through to ereader in a really cute way. As a book lover I enjoyed it. As a social historian I loved it as you saw the impact the development of the written word had on the development of society.


    8. If you know me, I love books about books! When I first saw this at a bookstore a couple of weeks ago, I was intrigued and excited. Book (alternatively published as My Name is Book) is a succinct summary of the history of books, as narrated by the book himself! The illustrations and quotes are great! While I largely knew most of the history, I did learn some new bits.


    9. Comment s'amuser en redécouvrant l'histoire du livre? C'est avec humour et poésie que l'auteur conçoit un voyage dans le temps. Des tablettes d'argile au e-book, voici un parcours hilarant raconté par un livre. J'ai adoré les illustrations et les citations qui complètent, voire surpassent les mots!


    10. Intéressant. Mais quand même très didactique et quand même très moralisateur Ey il adore se gargariser de sa propre existence Bref l'idée est bonne mais parfois maladroite


    11. Si le Livre avec un grand l'nous racontait son histoire. Il n'est pas ici question du contenu des livres mais bien du contenant, de l'objet-livre et de son évolution depuis l'apparition de l'écriture.Ce petit livre illustré, documenté, foisonnant de références, prend le lecteur à parti et le fait voyager et découvrir les étapes de la création du livre qui tient entre les mains. le narrateur est ainsi non l'auteur mais bien le livre en lui même, ce qui est somme toute assez original. L [...]

    13. **I won this book in a First Reads giveaway.**Okay, so this was super fun to read! It was both entertaining AND educational! It's an "autobiography" from the point of view OF A BOOK! Book talks about their history, from tablets to papyrus to modern day printing to ebooks! I LOVED this book. I learned things, and laughed out loud. It was short, but amazing! You should definitely read it! :D


    14. Très bel ouvrage introductif jeunesse sur l'apparition du livre dans l'activité humaine. S'adresse aux enfants, mais donne des pistes de départ aux adultes qui souhaiteront faire une recherche plus approfondie sur l'histoire du livre. Ce que j'ai moins apprécié sont les citations ajoutées à différents moments du livre, ce qui entrecoupent la continuité du texte.


    15. Es una historia preciosa, la propia historia del libro desde el origen de sus días hasta la actualidad contada con tanto cariño y de forma tan entrañable y amena que cualquier niño o adulto empezará a amar la lectura si no lo había conseguido hasta ahora.


    16. pleasant afternoon distraction not sure who's the target of this book? kids? will they get the reference to Germans during the reign of Hitler? adults? aren't some conclusion and language too infantile most of the book? hence 4 stars


    17. Comme le titre l'indique si bien, le narrateur de ce livre est un livre qui raconte l'histoire du livre (prenez le temps qu'il vous faut pour assimiler les différents niveaux d'abstraction). De l'invention de l'écriture cunéiforme jusqu'au e-book, en passant par les hiéroglyphes, les moines copistes, la presse d'imprimerie et les autodafés, ce "métalivre" nous raconte son histoire passionnante de façon ludique.C'est un documentaire qui prend des airs de roman jeunesse! D'un abord assez fa [...]



    18. the voice in this was annoying and tried too hard to be poetic but I learned that “blurbing” a book comes from BELINDA BLURB. that’s worth the price of admission alone baby





    19. Un libro que prometía mucho, pero se queda en eso, en promesa.Lo ví en la FILIJ y se me hizo muy bonito e interesante que el libro contase su propia historia, cómo surgió y cómo ha evolucionado.Sin embargo da muchos tumbos, tiene información incompleta, va y viene en el tiempo, no sigue una buena estructura, e incluso la narración deja que desear. Por ejemplo, el libro dice: "y nadie sabe a ciencia cierta de dónde vino esta idea", ¿qué no se supone que si estás narrando tu propia hist [...]




    20. Libro: una autobiografía de John Agard con ilustraciones de Neil Packer, es uno de esos libros que, como pocos, me han dejado con sentimientos tan encontrados. Como el título lo indica es la historia del libro contada por él mismo, desde las tabletas de arcilla, pasando por los manuscritos medievales y los primeros libros impresos, hasta llegar al libro electrónicoReseña completa en Uvejota, Blog de Bibliotecas


    21. Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - BuchseeleRezensionsexemplar, zur Verfügung gestellt vom Verlag im Austausch für eine ehrliche Rezension ♥Dass es vor der Erfindung des eBooks alle Bücher nur gedruckt auf Papier gab, dass dürfte auch heute noch jedem Kind klar sein - immerhin erfreut sich das gedruckte Buch trotz aller Ängste und Zweifel immer noch großer Beliebtheit und scheint als literarisches Medium auch nicht zu kränkeln. Doch von der Erfindung [...]
