The Lost Fairy Tales (Pages and Co. #2)
Tilly and Oskar are book wanderers, a special group of people who can travel into stories. Tilly lives with her mom and grandparents in the family’s bookstore, called Pages and Co. Their lives are peaceful until something startling happens. The Head Librarian of the British Underlibrary is being replaced! The new Head Librarian, Melville Underwood, is fishy, especially the fact that he seemed to appear out of nowhere. Even more shocking, Melville wants to bind books so that no one can book wander in them! Tilly and Oskar decide they must stop this wicked deed, but as usual, Tilly’s grandparents want her to leave things to the adults. Tilly could help if anyone would let her.
Tilly and Oskar are sent to Paris for Christmas where they learn surprising secrets. After a stunning betrayal leaves them in deeper trouble than they bargained for, Tilly and Oskar must find a way to stop Melville and his sinister allies, because the future of book wandering depends on it.
I liked this book because it was an unpredictable read with plenty of fun! There were a lot of twists and turns, with a sweet, imaginative story. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves fairy tales.
