Have you ever wondered what it's like to BE a book? The BEST bits are getting to hang our with your friends and tell amazing stories, but sometimes a good book can end up in the wrong place at the wrong time... And then they might get scribbled on, nibbled on or even lose their last and most important page... And when that happens, it's time to go to... Book Hospital!
This funny, reassuring story is a celebration of books and the magic of reading. Because when you love your books, when you're kind to your books and when you read your books, they will take you on a magical journey that you'll never forget...
