What do you do when your best friend moves away? Clara takes comfort in her favorite place: Mrs Owl’s bookshop. Mrs. Owl has a knack for finding the perfect book for every customer, before they even realize what it was they were looking for. Surrounded by books that spring to life, a rhyming cat and mounds of cinnamon buns, Clara never feels alone.
But someone is determined to close the bookshop down. Now it’s up to Clara and her new friends to save it. With support from her family (and the help of Mrs. Owl) Clara may be able to save her beloved shop and feel better about the many changes in her life. Translated from the original German, and with charming black-and-white spot illustrations, this is a cozy, magical read that will help young readers see challenges as a new chapter in their stories.
"There is plenty of action, angst, and fun as well as imaginative, sometimes hilarious magic. Friendly, informal black-and-white cartoons that enhance the fun are sprinkled throughout. There’s a happy, satisfying, if not perfect ending that will have readers glad for Clara. A lovely mixture of friends and family and more than a touch of magic." — Kirkus Reviews
