The Lovereading4Kids comment
A truly magical and funny story that is guaranteed to inspire girls from 6-10 to become green-fingered. Lucy’s knack in growing things better than anyone is a sight to behold but she must show her true talent when someone becomes more than a little disgruntled with her success. Can Lucy save the day?
The author, Sally Gardner is an inspiration to any child with the challenge of dyslexia for she herself is severely dyslexic but has turned her hand to writing with huge success and is the winner of one of the most sought-after book awards.
Lucy Willow by Sally Gardner
'There were three things that marked out Lucy Willow as different. The first was that she lived on a train. The second was that she had a snail called Ernest as a pet. And the third, the most important of all, was that she had green fingers.' It's Lucy's green fingers that save the day when Silverboots McCoy, the famous footballer, and his girlfriend Blossom B order flowers for their wedding - for Ricky Sparks, who runs the rival garden centre, will stop at nothing to get the contract for himself. Longer and fuller than the Magical Children books, Lucy Willow has all Sally Gardner's soaring imagination, enchanting humour and great heart, and is rich in scenes and characters that readers will adore and always remember.
