Acquired via BookCrossing 14 Apr 2007 – lent by LindyB

A wonderful Young Adults book revolving around the history of the printed book, mysteries and a bit of magic. I loved the printing history and early books detail, as I would, and couldn’t find fault with it in the slightest, even though I would probably represent one of the more discerning readers (I haven’t been downstairs in the Bodleian though, I wonder if the other reader so far has!!). This was well done, exciting enough but with enough characterisation (I loved Duck) and description to give a more satisfying read on different levels.

Returning to Linda who will probably ring it – if she does, I urge everyone to read it!

PS I took most of the little red stars out – sorry! There’s at least one in my office and a couple in the house still, though!
