The right book might just change your life…

From award-winning author Katrina Nannestad and beloved illustrator Cheryl Orsini comes The Travelling Bookshop, an enchanting series for young readers aged 7+ that sparks exploration, imagination and curiosity.

The series follows Mim Cohen, a young girl who roams the world in a travelling bookshop with her dad, brother and a horse called Flossy. Flossy leads them where she will, to the place where they’re needed most… the place where the perfect book will find its way home.

In Mim and the Woeful Wedding, Mim has arrived on a charming Greek island, where a wedding is about to take place. Everyone in the village is excited – everyone, that is, except the bride and groom.

Mim knows they’re here to help Anjelica, the bride. To stop the wedding. To set her free to follow her dreams. If only Anjelica would read the right book, the one Mim gave her. If only she would stop reading the wrong book.

In the series, there’s a continued emphasis on words – both written and spoken. Through Mim’s hobby of collecting words, she proves that you can take any word from anywhere and turn it into something special.

Mim and the Woeful Wedding is another touching tale about the magic of books and words. Mim and her eccentric family get to physically roam across the globe in their travelling bookshop, and we get to read our way there with them. Opening with tales of Greek mythology, the scene is set as the travelling bookshop whisks young readers away to the picturesque Greek Islands – complete with everything from quintessential white houses and donkeys for transport to baklava and history books about ancient Greece.

The travelling bookshop settles on a new place each time for a reason, and this time it’s so Mim and Anjelica can cross paths at the right moment. They form an unlikely friendship that’s innocent and sincere, and together they encourage young readers to be open, honest and to chase their dreams. As Anjelica’s big day approaches, all becomes clear – proving, like Mim’s Dad always says, that the bookshop is never wrong.
