The right book might just change your life ...
Mim Cohen roams the world in a travelling bookshop, with her dad and brother and a horse called Flossy. Flossy leads them where she will, to the place where they're needed most ... the place where the perfect book will find its way home.
Now Mim has arrived in a pretty Dutch village where she meets Willemina, a kind and gentle child, who is being bullied by a girl named Gerda.
Mim knows they're here to help Willemina. To change her life. To make her strong and brave and happy.
If only Dad would find her the right book. If only he would stop giving everyone else the wrong book!
From the beloved author of The Girl, the Dog and the Writer in Rome and We Are Wolves comes an enchanting series for young readers.
Reading this book, I can honestly say that this concept is a secret dream of mine. A travelling, magical bookshop just sounds like so much fun, and I wish this existed in real life. All through the story I couldn’t stop smiling. The characters are so much fun. They have their own unique personalities and way of acting. You fall in love with the family that lives in the Travelling Bookshop within seconds. Mim and Nat are beautiful siblings. Mim collects words, and Nat collects ‘Os’ and I was taken back to my childhood when I would collect random things that no one else understood.
The story is a wonderful exploration into bullying and why people are mean. It’s about making friends and forgiveness. Willemina is a kind and shy girl who loves to dig in the mud, and Gerda is a bully that won’t leave her alone. There are a lot of lessons to learn in this story and, more than that, the story is fun and engaging. It’s a story that everyone can enjoy and love. It’s a story I will share with my children in the future and it will stay with me for a long time.
