What a huge pleasure this book is! It has everything we want from magical realism – the archetypal struggle between good and evil, a pair of plucky youngsters who embark on a series of quests and overcome danger and fear in the process, a silver tongued villain who really is a nasty piece of work, human frailty and optimism, family love, quirky humour and a marvellous setting in a place we all want to visit i.e. The Grandest Bookshop in the World.
