Mrs Featherby had been having pleasant dreams until she woke to discover the front of her house had vanished overnight On a seemingly normal morning in London, a group of people all lose something dear to them, something dear but peculiar: the front of their house, their piano keys, their sense of direction, their place of work.Meanwhile, Jake, a young boy whose father brings him to London following his mother s sudden death in an earthquake, finds himself strangely attracted to other people s lost things. But little does he realise that his most valuable possession is slipping away from him.Of Things Gone Astray is a magical fable about modern life and values. Perfect for fans of Andrew Kaufman and Cecelia Ahern."

Loved the premise and character development. While I was disappointed by the ending, it's still a worthwhile read.

Trying to find the artiest way to take pictures of my nook. I actually love my nook, even if it is probably the most unnecessary piece of technology since the zune. One of the books I'm trying out today. Surreal, but with lots of heart? That's kind of my jam.

Jeffrey Cranor (co author of Welcome to Night Vale) gave me his copy of this book at World Book Night. His review about this book was great and I wish I took notes 😅 I'm only a couple of pages in but it's a series of short stories about loss.

Matilda Love the cover. 4y
MrBook Interesting cover! 3y
