This week I am showcasing Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James.
Favourite sentence from page 11
Tilly had never been very far outside London, but she felt like a seasoned traveller within the pages of books: she had raced across the rooftops of Paris, learned to ride a broomstick and seen the Northern Lights from the deck of a ship.
The book in three words
Bookish, magical, adventurous.
If you love books and magic then this is the book for you! I was instantly captivated by the whole concept of book wandering and found myself wishing I could do it. Tilly is such a likeable, brave character who, I feel is a great role model for all those children who love reading, but get teased about it. Plot-wise I was hooked and found it very hard to put the book down, you get so drawn into the story that you just want to carry on reading. Such a great start to an amazing series.
