Once upon a time there was a little girl called Mabel. A girl who didn't like books...
A gorgeously warm picture book, celebrating the boundless potential of stories to inspire and delight. Sharon Davey’s superb illustrations add warmth, life – and over 1,000 books! – to Emma Perry’s charming storytelling.
Mabel can’t be bothered with books. They’re fine for juggling, standing on to reach high shelves, and even bumpety-bumping down the stairs. But the stories inside? No, thank you!
Until one day, the books decide they’ve had ENOUGH. They’ll show her! Mabel is plunged between the pages of the books she’s ignored, meeting a whole host of characters who will change everything for her, forever...
By Emma Perry (founder of the award-winning review site My Book Corner and International Book-Giving Day) and Sharon Davey (illustrator and theatre designer) - this picture book is perfect for both reluctant readers and story-lovers.
