Synopsis (as taken from Amazon) is as follows:
Since her mother’s disappearance, eleven-year-old Tilly has found comfort in stories at Pages & Co., her grandparents’ bookshop. But when her favourite characters, Anne of Green Gables and Alice from Wonderland, appear in the shop, Tilly’s adventures become very real. Not only can she follow Anne and Alice into their thrilling worlds, she discovers she can bookwander into any story she chooses.
Tilly’s new ability could even help her solve the mystery of what happened to her mother all those years ago. But danger may be lurking on the very next page…
Ability to read – I found this very easy to read, though after the first couple of chapters the excitement wore off. I still greatly enjoyed reading this.
Characterisation – Tilly was an interesting character who definitely embodied bravery and curiosity. It must be very fun to live the life of Tilly in the bookshop. The characters were very interesting to read about and the originality of the story made the characters appear more intriguing and exciting.
Visualisation – It was very easy to visualise what was happening. The plot of the story was compelling to read and there was an excitement to visualising what was happening.
Enjoyment – I greatly enjoyed this book. The idea of being able to walk into books and have characters to interact with is a dream I’ve often had and a dream many a bookworm has often thought about. Seeing that avenue explored in this way in such a unique and interesting way just made it more fantastic and fun to read. I’m so glad that there is a sequel.
Star Rating – ★★★★
