Book review: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James

Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book (the first in the series) has a very clever premise. Bookwanderers are those readers who have the ability to actually wander into a book and “live out” the book’s experiences. Tilly is one of those fortunate to have the ability to do so, and this is her first adventure in the discovery of her abilities. The adventure includes how to be a good friend, how to be true to herself, and the hunt to find out what really happened to her mother.
If either Anne of Green Gables or Alice in Wonderland is a favorite of yours, this book will be especially resonant. (And the Lord of the Rings gets a throwaway line shout out as well.)
The book is geared towards middle school readers and, therefore, is an easy and perhaps overly simplistic read for adults. That being said, it would make an excellent gift for a bookworm of any age who would enjoy actually having the ability to be a bookwanderer.
