The Adventures of Miss Petitfour
Five charming short stories feature in this debut children's book from an award-winning writer for adults. Miss Petitfour is an eccentric and tremendously likable protagonist. She travels everywhere by tablecloth, gathering up the corners and catching the wind, to be carried wherever it takes her - with her sixteen cats in tow.
The author highlights noteworthy words throughout, with delightful explanations as to how they may be used to construct a stimulating narrative or steer the tale in a different direction.
These enjoyable digressions, along with gentle humour, whimsical illustrations and small but significant adventures, create an immensely entertaining book for budding writers and confident readers looking for something a bit different.
