Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Step back to Shakespeare's time in this thrilling adventure story which weaves togther a real and an imaginary past. Pip sets off to London to search for his father and to prove that he can become a famous knife fighter, like him. But London is a scary place and soon Pip finds that his life is in great danger. Luckily, he makes two very unual friends - including Shakespear himself. Who is Julia Eccleshare ?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
