Very Very Pearlie is a bind-up of the first 3 stories written by comedienne Wendy Harmer.
The colourful, exuberant illustrations by Mike Zarb complement the stories with a happy chorus of all things pink. They’re a perfect match for the 6+ girl market.
Each story has a blend of humour, mystery and drama. And they all finish with a little moral or ah-ha moment to leave everyone satisfied.
Pearlie has a core group of friends in Hyde Park that help (or hinder her in her day to day life). As the books develop we’re visited by Fern the New Zealand fairy and Opal the outback fairy. Pearlie also goes off on her own adventures to Central Park in New York and the cherry blossom festival in Japan.
Everyone has heard of the fairies who live at the bottom of the garden. But did you know that fairies also live in the big city? Of course they do! Pearlie looks after Jubilee Park and it keeps her very busy. Every day she makes the slippery dip slippery, opens all the flowers, polishes the dragonflies’ wings, and looks after all the animals who live in the park. But one day she wakes up to find everything topsy-turvy. Hurly-burly! What can have gone wrong? It’s up to Pearlie to find out…
A delightfully funny urban fairytale, PEARLIE IN THE PARK is perfect for new and emerging readers.
