    When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up different worlds and cast new light on this one.

    In Bookworm, Lucy brings the favourite characters of our collective childhoods back to life and disinters a few forgotten treasures poignantly, wittily using them to tell her own story, that of a born, and unrepentant, bookworm.
