(Stylist)A delicously nostalgic treat that will make you want to pull out all those old favourites again (Good Housekeeping)Artfully evokes that particular magic of reading as a child… Deliciously unrepentant Mangan’s Bookworm makes a timely case not just for how vital reading is but also for rereading books as a child and how reading remains consoling fortifying and sometimes magical. (The Sunday Times)A wonderful romp through the pages of childhood illuminated by wisdom humour and enthusiasm. (Bernard Cornwell)What Mangan does brilliantly is express the experience of reading and articulate the emotional connections we make with stories. She understands how books become entwined in our lives and help us make sense of the world.

(Guardian) Reseña del editor A love letter to the joys of childhood reading from Wonderland to Narnia.'Passionate witty informed and gloriously opinionated' Jacqueline Wilson'I felt like this was written just for me and I think everyone will feel this way' Jenny Colgan'Beautiful and moving... It will kickstart a cascade of nostalgia for countless people' Marian KeyesWhen Lucy Mangan was little stories were everything. They opened up new worlds and cast light on all the complexities she encountered in this one.She was whisked away to Narnia – and Kirrin Island – and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. She wandered the countryside with Milly-Molly-Mandy and played by the tracks with the Railway Children. With Charlotte’s Web she discovered Death and with Judy Blume it was Boys. No wonder she only left the house for her weekly trip to the library or to spend her pocket money on amassing her own at home.In Bookworm Lucy revisits her childhood reading with wit love and gratitude. She relives our best-beloved books their extraordinary creators and looks at the thousand subtle ways they shape our lives. She also disinters a few forgotten treasures to inspire the next generation of bookworms and set them on their way.Lucy brings the favourite characters of our collective childhoods back to life – prompting endless re-readings rediscoveries and inevitably fierce debate – and brilliantly uses them to tell her own story that of a born and unrepentant bookworm.
