Review by Holly Irish
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book, it’s wonderful and whimsical. I like how it gradually lets you into the world of book wandering. First you see characters from famous books interact with Tilly. Then they let you slip inside a scene from Alice in Wonderland. Tilly is a great main character, and I love how level headed and strong she is. However, not all is what it seems. Tilly having to be raised by her grandparents is on the search for her mom, who left suddenly when she was just 1 years old. The key to finding her is learning how to book wander and finding out just exactly who her parents are. This is a great book for all readers. Happy reading my friends.
A magical adventure to delight the imagination. A curl-up-on-the-sofa debut from a uniquely talented author.
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.
