This blog post was originally going to be a video, now that I’ve decided to join BookTube. However I’ve been full of cold this week, and super busy. I’m actually typing this out on the bus.
I’ll tell you this.
If you don’t read this book, share it with your offspring and others, you are truly missing out on something VERY magical.
Flick Hudson is twelve years old. She is the eldest sibling, and we very quickly notice that she isn’t 100% happy at home. – Although her parents treat her well physically, you do get the sense that perhaps all of her emotional needs aren’t being met. I won’t say anymore, I’m keeping this review spoiler free.
Flick’s family move to a village, that village is where Flick meets Jonathan Mercator and is introduced to The Strangeworlds Travel Agency and the ability to travel to New world through suitcases.
But of course! There is trouble brewing, things aren’t going well and it’s down to Flick to help fix things! This book is 100% the most enjoyable magical adventure that I have been on in a while. When Stephen King said that books are portable magic, this is EXACTLY what he meant.
