‘…a beautifully written ode to the inherent magic of books and reading…’
Claire Foster, Foreword Reviews, Five-Star Review


This month read The Wild Book by well-known Mexican writer Juan Villoro, translated by Lawrence Schimel. It’s a book about books, about the beauty and the power of knowledge: the perfect gift to celebrate the beginning of the new school year, and also the perfect Christmas present for a young avid reader!

The Wild Book is the incredible story of thirteen-year old Juan. After his parents’ separation, our young hero is sent away for the summer holiday to his uncle Tito, a book-obsessed recluse living inside a mysterious library… a strange place where weird things happen… books move on their own, and magical secrets are going to be revealed…
