Hi Savvy Readers! I’ve got the perfect book to share with you to curl up with during the chilly weeks ahead: Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James. It’s the first book in a new series about a young girl who has unique ability to wander through books, crossing over from real life into the pages.
Incredibly heartwarming and fun, Pages & Co. will take you back to your favourite childhood books in a completely new way!
Eleven year-old Tilly has lived with her grandparents above their family bookshop ever since her mother disappeared. Naturally, she loves to read just like the rest of her family. Tilly is a strong independent young girl, but she misses her mom fiercely and wishes she had more friends.
But of course, everything changes one day, as something incredible happens while Tilly is reading. The characters from the pages of her books begin appearing in the bookshop. Tilly discovers she is a book wanderer – she is able to travel into the book she is reading and explore these fictional worlds.
With the help of her new friends Anne (of Green Gables, of course!) and Alice (in Wonderland), Tilly learns to harness her new powers. She is determined to solve the mystery of why her mother disappeared so many years ago.
This is truly the perfect book for book lovers. With many homages to beloved classics and an emphasis on the transformative powers of reading, Pages & Co. will leave you with warm fuzzies. I can’t wait for the next book in this delightful new series!
