I’ve travelled the world in a boat on the sea, accompanied pirates and lived fancy free, I’ve seen all the things I have wanted to see – I did it by reading a book. I’ve won many battles, I’ve swum with the sharks, I’ve found buried treasure alone in the dark, I’ve lived in the elm trees of national parks – I did it by reading a book. I’ve worn my pyjamas whilst flying with birds, I’ve travelled alone and I’ve followed the herd, I’ve relished, devoured and revelled in words, I did it by reading a book. I’ve met many people, I’ve made many friends, and though I felt sad when I came to the end of the journey I’d made – I can make it again with the words of a well-written book.
