Lucy’s Book

It’s beautiful, it’s fun, it’s about a girl, a librarian, friends, travelling and that one book in life that impacts you so much that you want nothing more than that old tattered book.

You know when you see a book and you really want to read it even before you know anything about it?  It captured your eye and instantly you knew it was special? This was how I felt about Lucy’s Book.  I knew before I even opened it that I was going to love it, when I opened the package it came in I was beyond excited…if that is possible.

There are so many reasons why I love this book:

It’s a book about books.
It has a library cart illustration.
It’s about a Library.

The librarian is hip, cool and not Shhhh looking.

There are many many books and many many children excited about borrowing books.

Lucy’s favourite book got tattered and old from being loved by many children.

 

 

One of the most fabulous things about this book is that it was written and illustrated by Australians and is a story about an Australian Librarian Megan Daley.

The author has written a story that not only tells of a much loved book, but it creates a positive image of libraries, of friends sharing the joy of a book, and of stories taking you on a journey.  It makes a nice change to books that promote librarians as glasses and cardigan wearing ladies who only say the words shhh.

I recommend this book for all ages and would love to see this book on the shelves of children all over the word.

I received this book from the publisher Hatchette Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  This does not affect the content of my review.
