If i could give this book more than 5 stars i absolutely would!!
I was completely engrossed in The Bookshop Girl and just couldn’t put it down.
I think that Sylvia Bishop is marvellous because book lovers everywhere will appreciate the idea of not only living in a book store but living in the MOST AMAZING book store!
The Emporium is the most incredible place- with rooms suspended by complicated system of ropes and chains.
Property is very likeable and her struggle to read is very real.
The story was fabulous to read and i thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
The illustrations are STUNNING! I absolutely adore them, it was the imagery that lead me to the book in the first place- the image of this lovely girl surrounded by all of those books and of course her cat- that instantly struck a cord with me.
I would love to continue reading about Property and her family and of course the Emporium.
I found this book an easy, gentle read and i just didn’t want to put it down!
I would also like to give a shout out to author Sylvia Bishop and illustrator Ashley King who i think make a fantastic team, if you enjoyed this book try Erica’s Elephant too.
I feel that The Bookshop Girl will become a security blanket of a book, something i will comfortably return to over and over again.
Thank you to Scholastic and Toppsta for my copy of this book.
