Intersting premise, not entirely convincing.

The premise is that characters from books cross into the real world, and Tilly can cross into their book worlds. An interesting idea, but a bit lost on the kids who aren't familiar with Treasure Island, Anne of Green Gables or a Little Princess. I found the fictional characters a bit annoying and lacking complexity. Perhaps Mr 8 and Miss 6 were a bit young for this, but they do love the Nevermoor and Wizards of Once series, and love an audiobook. We all found the narration quite annoying, especially the lengthy pause after each time a character speaks. One of the characters conceiving a child with a book character is bit awkward!

One to listen to over and over

Our family of 4 love this series. Children 6 and 8 have listened to the series twice now. Narration is fantastic, we love the gutsy characters, and the mix of adventure, humour and a bit of scary thrown in.
