Passionate, witty, informed, knowledgeable, and gloriously stubborn Jacqueline Wilson “Beautiful and movingIt will start a cascade of nostalgia for countless people” by Marian Keyes When Lucy Mangan has little, stories have everythingThey opened up new worlds and shed light on all the complexities she encountered in this oneShe was taken to the world of Narnia – and Kirrin from the Island and Wonderland.She ventures rabbit down the holes and tracks womble burrows of midnight in the gardens and chocolate factories.She wandered in the countryside with Milly-Molly-Mandy, and played by the tracks with the Children’s Railway.With Charlotte’s Web, she discovered Death and with Judy Blume they were Boys.No wonder she doesn’t leave home from her weekly visit to the library or spend her pocket money on collecting from her own home.As a library rat, Lucy revisits her childhood of reading with spirit, love and gratitude.She relives our beloved books, their extraordinary creators, and looks at the thousand subtle ways they shape our lives.She also disinters some forgotten treasures to inspire the next generation of book devourers and put them on their way.Lucy brings the favorite characters of our childhood back to life, inciting endless re-reading, rediscoveries, and inevitably fierce debate – and uses it brilliantly to tell her own story, that of a birth, not a repentant, library rat.
