A treat for our younger readers: author Anna James is coming to the bookshop on Sunday, 30th September to sign copies of her wonderful debut novel, Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers.

Since her mother’s disappearance, eleven-year-old Tilly has found comfort in stories at Pages & Co., her grandparents’ bookshop. But when her favourite characters, Anne of Green Gables and Alice from Wonderland, appear in the shop, Tilly’s adventures become very real. Not only can she follow Anne and Alice into their thrilling worlds, she discovers she can bookwander into any story she chooses. Tilly’s new ability could even help her solve the mystery of what happened to her mother all those years ago. But danger may be lurking on the very next page…

We all love this book so much – it’s a charming, exciting debut about the magic of books and the power of imagination – a joy for young (and not so young) book lovers. We hope you can bring along your 9 – 12 year old bookwanderers for a chance to meet a rising star and to hear about Tilly at the beginning of her adventures.

Anna will be at the bookshop at 11.15 a.m. on Sunday, 30th September – no need to book!
