Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading by Lucy Mangan

Like so many of us Lucy Mangan spent much of her childhood with her nose buried in a book. In Bookworm she looks back at her reading, from The Hungry Caterpillar to I Capture the Castle. She unearths forgotten gems, tells the history of picture books from 1658 and will remind everyone, regardless of age, of a book they will want to reread. Perfect for parents and all bookworms.
