So last year I read this author’s (and illustrator’s) first book: Erica’s Elephant. Imagine my delight when I found out that they made a new book which is coming out in a few days! This time the book isn’t about elephants, oh no, it is about something even better. About books, about reading, about book shops, about competitions. I just am soooo excited. This sounds like the perfect book for a bookworm like me (and other bookworms as well).
Plus that cover is just perfection. 😍😍😍
This story is about a little girl named Property Jones, so-called because she was left in the lost property cupboard of a bookshop when she was five years old. Property loves living in the bookshop, but she has a whopper of a secret… she can’t actually read! So Property doesn’t see the newspaper article announcing the chance to win the Montgomery Book Emporium, the biggest and most magnificent bookshop in the world! When her family win the competition, Property finds herself moving to the Emporium, a magical place filled with floor upon floor of books and a very bad-tempered cat. But all is not at it seems at the Emporium and soon Property Jones finds herself in a whole heap of trouble.
