Mariella, Queen of the Skies
Publisher: Barrington Stoke
Mariella is a super-smart young scientist whose head is bursting with ideas. Her head is so full that she finds bedtime a real nuisance, as it tends to interrupt her when she is doing very important inventing.
But what if Mariella could put off bedtime by changing the way time works? By orbiting the Earth at over 1,000 miles an hour, she could make sure that the darkness of night never caught up with her. And surely everything she needs to achieve this can be found in her dad’s shed!
Presented in a small format as part of the "Little Gems" series, this humorous first chapters book is packed with colourful illustrations, and is ideal for youngsters making the transition from picture books to independent reading.
