Every so often a book slides across my desk and into my heart. This, from Scholastic, was one such. It’s funny and emotional and full of the power of words.
When the Jones family wins the Montgomery Book Emporium in a raffle, it seems too good to be true. And, of course, it is! What at first seemed like a thing of wonder turns out to be anything but. However, with the help of a ferocious kitten and her own powers of observation, young Property saves the day. The Bookshop Girl by Sylvia Bishop is a cleverly funny romp ideal for reading aloud or for confident readers to enjoy alone.
