Pages and Co: Tilly and the Book Wanderers

Here’s a book to excite all readers.

Here is a book that I (Sarah) pushed under Emma’s nose and forced her to read because I knew how much she would love it.

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.

I love this book because it dives into fantasy worlds I also love, like Alice in Wonderland. It was also easy to understand, which was great! With Alice, all the books Tilly and Oskar wander into are vivid and I can see them come to life, as if I was watching them on film. Tilly also reminds me a lot of Belle from Beauty and the Beast, always excited to be in a bookshop or library surrounded by various worlds and magical stories. The rest of the story was fun, exciting, and I liked that it had a happy ending.

It is a book for the dreamers, and people who always want to see their favourite book characters come to life.

I rate it 5 out of 5★
