Hello, dear sweet peas!
It’s time for me to wave some great Middlegrade books in your face again. You already expected that? Well, great!
Today I wanna show you a book I’ve recently reviewed and still think it needs a little more attention:
Tilly had never been 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.Page 11 of Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James
Eleven year-old Tilly has lived above her grandparents’ bookshop ever since her mother disappeared shortly after she was born. Like the rest of her family, Tilly loves nothing more than to escape into the pages of her favourite stories. One day Tilly realises that classic children’s characters are appearing in the shop through the magic of `book wandering’ – crossing over from the page into real life. With the help of Anne of Green Gables and Alice in Wonderland. Tilly is determined to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother all those years ago, so she bravely steps into the unknown, unsure of what adventure lies ahead and what dangers she may face.
What books do bookworms love more than any others? Books about books of course! And what a wonderful and whimsical and delightful book it is. It takes you with it into a new and thrilling world that also feels so warm and familiar. Look here to read my whole review.
