"This quirky little novel is part fable, part romance, and wholly a love letter to books...It's a fairy tale. But it's charming to read, and its central theme--that books can change lives--is indisputable and satisfying." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"With a cast of characters reminiscent of the French film Amélie, Féret-Fleury creates a world that is delightful and enchanting...Light and sweet as a bonbon, this little confection of a book is delicious." --Kirkus Reviews

"Will speak to fans of Nina George and Kate Atkinson, and any reader who loves getting lost in a secondhand bookshop. The author's love of the written word comes through on every page...This ode to finding the right book at the right time comes with its own suggested reading list for those hoping to widen their literary horizons." --Booklist (starred review)

"A life-affirming novel for our times about the transformative power of literature and the bonds people forge through their mutual love of books. It appeals both to the reader's heart and soul." --The Bookseller

"A delightful novel." --Madame Figaro

"An enchanting story made of literary references that would convince anyone to become a reader, even the most reluctant ones." --Avantages
