Perijee and Me
When 11-year-old Caitlin discovers a shrimp-like alien creature on the shores of her island home, she takes responsibility for teaching it about the world. Caitlin becomes increasingly close to her alien friend, treating him like a brother. There's only one problem - Perijee won't stop growing.
Perijee and Me is a heartfelt and wonderful adventure about friends, family, and loyalty. Many children will relate to the main character, Caitlin. She has difficulties with her friends and family, and struggles with dyslexia.
The interactions between Perijee and Caitlin are laugh-out-loud funny and incredibly heart-warming. Filled with wonder, joy, and adventure, Perijee and Me is middle-grade fiction at its best.
Ross Montgomery is a rising star in the children's book world, and Perijee and Me is the best of his books so far. Perfect for fans of Roald Dahl and Studio Ghibli films.
