The Bookshop Girl – By Sylvia Bishop
This story is about a little girl named Property Jones, so-called because she was left in the lost property cupboard of a bookshop when she was five years old. Property loves living in the bookshop, but she has a whopper of a secret ... she can't actually read! So Property doesn't see the newspaper article announcing the chance to win the Montgomery Book Emporium, the biggest and most magnificent bookshop in the world! When her family win the competition, Property finds herself moving to the Emporium, a magical place filled with floor upon floor of books and a very bad-tempered cat.
But all is not at it seems at the Emporium and soon Property Jones finds herself in a whole heap of trouble.
I liked it because it was very adventurous and exciting. I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. I loved the way the girl was called Property because she came from a lost and found box. It was an interesting story and I would definitely recommend it.
