Aysha Kala delivers an innocent and awed performance in the narration of Anna James's first book. Tilly, an 11-year-old, lives in London with her grandparents above their beloved bookshop, Pages & Co. Kala voices Tilly with the appropriate dreaminess and curiosity--and a fabulous English accent. Soon, Tilly gets pulled into the books she loves so much and discovers her family's secret of being able to wander into the stories they read. Starting on her own grand adventure to find her mother, she travels into many children's classics, meeting many characters. Although Kala performs the story well, her lack of differentiation between voices makes it hard to follow. Nonetheless, the story's premise will appeal to booklovers of all ages.
