Property Jones was found in the lost property cupboard of the Jones’ bookshop when she was just 5 years old, which explains her name. What she doesn’t explain to Mrs Jones and Michael is that she can’t read, but that doesn’t stop her from loving the books in their cold, quaint bookstore.
When the family discover they’ve won The Montgomery Book Emporium (the biggest and most magnificent bookshop in the world), they think all their problems are solved, when in fact, they’ve only just begun…
Humour and peril are swirled together to create a lovely mystery in a dream setting for book lovers of all ages, with well crafted characters, including a devilishly, delightful kitten.
Sylvia Bishop has done for books what Roald Dahl did for chocolate. If ever this bookshop comes to be I will be at the head of the queue, and will no doubt leave book rich, purse empty! Fabulous illustrations by Ashley King help bring the Emporium and it’s owners and to life.
