The Travelling Bookshop Bk1: Mim and the Baffling Bully by Katrina Nannestad. Illus. Cheryl Orsine. Pub. ABC Books imprint HarperCollins, 2021.

August 10, 2021

Mim her brother Nat, parrot Coco, horse Flossy and father live in a travelling bookshop. When it crosses over the border into Holland every book automatically translates into the Dutch language and when the caravan towed by Flossy stops in a suitable it too changes into something else, something akin to the Tardis in Doctor Who. Outside it looks small but inside it is something different. Read it and find out how and what.

While camping Mim meets a new friend, Willemina who is sad because she is being bullied but Gerda a girl who seems to have everything. This is the main plot in this first book of a planned series by Australian author Katrina Nannestad.

If you believe that reading is magic and I do, then this a book for you and for all newly confident readers particularly girls but not exclusively so. The illustrations by Cheryl Orsini are complimentary to the written text.

Easy to read with good family values and characters boith human and animal that are appealing.
