“Dazzling.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Charlotte and Emily Brontë enter a fantasy world that they invented in order to rescue their siblings in this “lovely, fanciful” (Booklist, starred review) novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.

Inside a small Yorkshire parsonage, Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne Brontë have invented a game called Glass Town, where their toy soldiers fight Napoleon and no one dies. This make-believe land helps the four escape from a harsh reality: Charlotte and Emily are being sent away to a dangerous boarding school. But then something incredible happens: a train whisks them all away to a real Glass Town, and the children trade the moors for a wonderland all their own.

This book has it all: Wordplay, adventure, fun, fantasy, and friendship. A beautiful story about four kids who, when they take the wrong train to their school end up in the Glass Town, where everything is literal, and all of their toys are alive. The Glass Town Game is charming, sweet, and cute. You would like it if you enjoy extremely fantasy oriented books. It is a bit of a tricky read, but definitely worth the trouble. Hey, what's NOT to like about four kids who just don’t want to go to school? It's sort of a cross between The Phantom TollBooth, and Land Of Stories. You will enjoy it if you like fantasy, friendship, and adventure. - Tessa
