How does the idea of travelling the world in a book van sound to you? Well, it sounds like an adventure to me! And that's what 11-year-old Maizey Lee embarks on in Erni Salleh's new middle grade book, The Travelling Library Chronicles of Maizey Lee: The Road to Bangkok.

Set in a world where adults are losing their imagination, Maizey, her mum and her atuk set off on a road trip in a travelling library. Their journey, however, becomes complicated and dangerous when they are tailed by an evil pharmaceutical company believed to be connected to the disappearance of Maizey's scientist father. With a journal and talking plant (!) left behind by her father, Maizey starts to uncover secrets about her father's disappearance while learning to deal with the changes and challenges in her life.

As per blurb by yours truly, this is a fun and delightful story about courage and dealing with change, that will have you rooting for its brave protagonist 💪🏽I also love that readers get to experience through Maizey, who is half Malay, half Welsh, what it's like to grow up in a mixed-race family, and go on a journey around the world. We visit Malaysia and Thailand in the first book of this series and I believe it's China next in the sequel 😉 I highly recommend this for readers 8-12 years old who love adventure and mystery stories.
