Many months on the bestseller list, this book has received rave reviews around the world. “There were books in dressers and drawers and desks, in closets and cupboards and chests. There were books on the sofa and books on the stairs …” And Meena hates all of them, as does her cat Max, who is shakily balanced on a giant stack of them. As Meena tries to rescue Max, the books come crashing down, freeing a wonderland of characters and animals who take Meena on a fanciful and funny romp through the magic of reading.
