Book Review – Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James (Pages & Co 2)

pages2A magical adventure to delight the imagination. The curl-up-on-the-sofa snuggle of a series from a uniquely talented author.

Tilly Pages is a bookwanderer; she can travel inside books, and even talk to the characters she meets there. But Tilly’s powers are put to the test when fairytales start leaking book magic and causing havoc…

On a wintery visit to Paris, Tilly and her best friend Oskar bravely bookwander into the land of fairytales to find that characters are getting lost, stories are all mixed-up, and mysterious plot holes are opening without warning. Can Tilly work out who, or what, is behind the chaos so everyone gets their happily-ever-after?

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I just love this world. I want to be able to bookwander so badly.

I love Tilly’s frustration in this as well as her reaction to those around her – it really felt like she was her age, and not magically with the composure of an adult. Plus I loved getting to see more of the underlibrary and fairytales.

I did find it a little frustrating that it was simple resolve for one thing and no resolution for another. But I think that just means that book 3 is going to be awesome and action packed!

Oskar was also full of sass! And learning more about his background was fab.

Honestly this series is just pure excellent fun.


Buy Tilly and the Lost Fairytales from Amazon UK. Read my review of book 1, Tilly and the Bookwanderers!
