Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James
“I absolutely adored this book! The story was intriguing and I read it so quickly just wanting to know what would happen at the end. The characters are endearing and I really liked Tilly. I will definitely be passing this book onto the ks2 classes at my school as I think it’s perfect for that key stage.” @PleadsreadsLearn more
