Books about books have the tendency to either be totally magical, and let you feel you’ve found a kindred spirit, or a little bit pretentious, so I was nervous on picking up Pages and Co.

While I was expecting something castle-based and possibly Sleeping Beauty related, what I got was entirely different: an introduction to a really cool magical land, and an action-packed quest with a great heroine!
