Hetty and the Battle of the Books

Hetty isn’t the only person in her school who loves the library but when you’ve fallen out with your friends, it’s not just a special place, it’s a safe place. Under the kindly wing of Mrs. Juster, the librarian, it’s the best kind of library; where all book-loving students can gather and a social hub for clubs to meet. The bookish bliss is disrupted by the awful news that funding for the library has been cut and the library will be closed. Hetty can’t let this happen but she knows she isn’t the kind of student that Principal McCarthy will listen to, so she needs the right kind of help.

This is the first instalment in a new trilogy charting the adventures of Tilly Pages, a young girl who lives above her grandparents’ bookshop and is determined to solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance years ago. One day, characters from Tilly’s favourite classic books start coming into the shop and Tilly begins to learn about the magic of ‘book-wandering’ – moving between the world of books and the real world.
