Linda Reviews: The Pages & Co Series

Pages & Co series by Anna James (Junior Fiction) - I was listening to a radio interview during lockdown when the interviewee happened to mention that his young daughter was reading a series of books she couldn’t put down. She was so excited to have finished the first, and was now reading the second. He said she described the Pages & Co series as ‘the best books ever’. After hearing this I went straight to my Waimakariri libraries app and placed book one on hold.
