Huge thank you to Raincoast for this ARC!
I adored Finding Serendipty. I realize books about girls and their dogs aren’t getting the greatest wrap right now, but I’m a complete and utter sucker for them. This is only the second instalment of the Tuesday McGillycuddy series, and I hope it’s not the last because I love these characters and this world so so much.
Tuesday is just such a delightful heroine, full of crazy and curiosities. This time around she is writing her novel, and all of a sudden the novel world and the real world begin to collide. With the help from Vivienne Small and the Librarian, they state that only the Gardener can fix this calamity from happening. Once again this book is full of charm and humour. I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit on the train ride home as I was reading this because Tuesday and Baxterr are just such a delight.
This series is just full of creativity and imagination. It’s one of those middle grade series that has the ability to hook itself to the reader and keep them guessing. This particular instalment is quite the adventure, and I was so excited to see more of Tuesday’s parents in this novel. In fact, I don’t think there is a character I didn’t like in this novel!
If you haven’t read Finding Serendipity, do yourself a favour and read that. Then go straight out afterwards and read this book too. This is such a gem of a series that has these magical powers to delight and entertain readers. If you love middle grade, or have a middle grader in your life who loves grand adventures with cheeky characters, then you need to get them hooked to this series.
Can I have book three yet? There has to be more! Please let there be more. ❤
