“The Forbidden Library” by Django Wexler is the first book in a thrilling middle grade series. Alice is a 12 year old who always loved reading. After witnessing a strange scene between her father and a fairy in her kitchen Alice’s is turned upside and suddenly being a “reader” takes on a whole new meaning.
This book is exciting and does contain some mild violence. Magic is everywhere and there is a there are a couple of talking cats. Read this book (and series) if you like Harry Potter, cats, books about books or libraries, fantastic beasts or adventure quests. (4 of 5 stars)
