A magical adventure to delight the imagination. A curl-up-on-the-sofa debut from a uniquely talented author. Eleven year-old Tilly has lived above her grandparents' bookshop ever since her mother disappeared shortly after she was born. 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. 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.
