Frost and icicles, Pearlie is back!
In the 11th book in this hugely successful series by Wendy Harmer, Pearlie is on her first magical adventure beyond the gates of Jubilee Park- to snowy New York City. It's f-f-freezing and Crystal the Central Park Fairy is nowhere to be found! Can Pearlie find a warm and cosy place to stay?
In this enchanting wintry tale Pearlie meets Chester the squirrel, hunts for walnuts in the snow and brings a welcome sprinkle of fairy dust to the icy found on Cherry Hill.
With stunning illustrations from the costume illustrator of Baz Luhrmann's Australia, Pearlie in Central Park is a delightful tale of sharing and friendship, brought alive by one of Australia's best-loved personalities.
