Pages and Co: The Lost Fairy Tales is the second book in a series about a young 12 year old girl whose Mom works at Pages and Co, the book store that Tilly’s family has owned for years. Soon the Christmas season has come again, but instead of being joyful Tilly and her family are sad. Their dear friend, and head librarian of the Underlibrary, Amelia has lost her job because the other librarians think she has kept secrets from them. Tilly and Oskar then set out to Paris for the holidays because Oskar’s dad has invited them to stay for three days. Little do they know Oskar’s grandma is a book wanderer. A book wanderer is a person who can travel into books and visit unknown places. Tilly and Oskar disobey Tilly’s grandparents and they bookwander in Paris into a book of fairy tales. The fairy tales are leaking book magic and falling apart. Everywhere Tilly and Oskar look something is being swallowed up by nothingness. A deep black hole of nothing. Tilly and Oskar try to find who is destroying fairy tales. They meet many beloved fairy tale characters like The Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk and many more. I recommend you read the book because it is full of action. If you like books that make you feel excited, and make you feel like you are in the book you’ll love The Lost Fairy Tales. It is an amazing book and it makes you think “ Why did it have to end?” I think that the author could have made a few corrections though because I have not read the first one, so I did not know what happened to Tilly’s mom. The book said that there was an accident with Tilly’s mom but it did not explain the accident. I think that if you were to write a book with a series, in each book you should explain what has happened in the previous stories. This book is one of the best I have ever read and I hope that one day Anna James will
write a third one about Tilly and her adventures. In the meantime, I will be reading the first book in the series.
