Nelly & Nora: The Windy Way Home

Publisher: Walker Entertainment

Review

Sisters Nelly and Nora dig a sand fort on the beach and as they snuggle inside, they notice how fast the clouds are racing across the sky. Deciding they should head home, they are surprised by the force of the wind, which pushes them back and knocks them over. They take their cue from nature: observing how the sheep bunch up and the birds flock together against the wind, the sisters huddle together to battle through the gale.

This gentle, everyday adventure, with appealing illustrations, captures all the fun and excitement of a blustery day. Young readers will recognise the characters from the CBeebies television series Nelly & Nora. A set of windmills to pull out and make at the end of the book adds a creative dimension.
