The Bookjumpers

Go hunting through the jungle on Shir Khan’s back, or fight alongside Goethe’s Werther with the witches from Macbeth, or gossip with Elizabeth Bennet about the good looking Mr Darcy… Amy had never thought that she could get so close to her favourite books! But, she’s a book jumper, and that means she’s really and truly able to dive into any story that she would like to have lived through. Amy tries out her new ability with enthusiasm until the world of books suddenly turns into something it’s not supposed to be.

Author Mechthild Gläser has been awarded the Seraph prize for fantasy, and has created an entertaining fantasy story with plenty of atmosphere, a whiff of romance and witty double-takes. A gripping book with plenty of jokes.
