Things changed the day the Anything Shop appeared in town. Suddenly Charlie could have what he wanted more than anything in the world. And he didn’t even need any money, he could just swap something he didn’t want. Like those annoying hugs his family felt the need to smother him with. How awesome is that! No more hugs and a bat that meant he never failed at cricket. He didn’t question the oddities surrounding the shop; like how it just seemed to just appear, the strange owners, Meryl and Alfred or the incredible magic behind the shops doors. Why would he? He had everything he wanted? Didn’t he?
Can Charlie and his new friend Sam figure out what is really going on with the Anything Shop before it is too late and the children in their town lose their special things forever?
The Anything Shop is a bit of fun, mystery and magic for independent readers. I recommend you get your hands on the latest book by Dawn Meredith.
