Ever since I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as a child I loved the idea of another land waiting to be discovered. To have such a land ruled by Readers...combining the two best things...a recipe for a great story.
Even not having read book one (though it’s part of The Lost Magician series rather than The Lost Wild) this makes sense and captures the imagination perfectly.

This was a whole host of fun. A quest, some familiar story faces, an evil and all powerful being and a young girl trying to find out who she really is. Piers Torday is a magnificent storyteller. I loved Pandora and Fizz - they were magnificent additions to the characters, who kept me chuckling along the way. Ooh also, yay for characters from Newcastle!

Once inside, she finds an old atlas which acts as a portal through which she is pulled into the Land of Folio, a world of the imagination. Once there, she meets the Librarian w
