When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up new worlds and cast light on all the complexities she encountered in this one. She was whisked away to Narnia and Kirrin Island and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. She wandered the countryside with Milly-Molly-Mandy and played by the tracks with the Railway Children.

I'm tentatively new to audio books, partly due to the belief that no-one can read as welĺ as I do, but I loved hearing Lucy Mangan's candid, funny and at times quite touching memoir of a child bookworm. I have, of course, now ordered a physical copy (thank you Amazon) but I'm glad I got to hear it from the author's mouth first.
