'What Zola Did on Monday' by Melina Marchetta, illustrated by Deb Hudson

Received from the Publisher 

From the BLURB: 

From the author of Looking for Alibrandi comes this gorgeous series to engage and entertain newly independent young readers. 

Zola loves living on Boomerang Street with her mum and her nonna. Every day of the week is an adventure. But Zola has a problem. No matter how much she tries, she can't keep out of trouble! Seven stories in the series – one for every day of the week.

*** 

What Zola Did on Monday by Melina Marchetta and illustrated by Deb Hudson is a beautiful story (the first in a 7-day series) and perfect for early readers aged 5+. It’s a truly gorgeous rendition of memory and grief - tempered in the perfect way for kids and so filled with family and happiness too. 
And oh, the dogs ☺️ 

Nobody will be surprised that this is another stunning addition to Marchetta’s list; a way to talk about family and complex emotions with a new readership who will benefit from the empathetic intelligence she always imparts.

5/5
