This is a magical adventure in which a drab landscape is transformed into a place of beauty and delight. Ruby’s playground is rundown; nothing works except for one swing for which there is always a long queue. One day, Ruby is given a magic ice lolly. When she plants its stick, a multi-coloured shoot appears and grows and grows and grows…Soon Ruby is off and away sweeping up her friends on a roller coaster adventure. Luckily, the magic lasts and her playground is transformed for good!
Ruby Nettleship and the Ice Lolly Adventure by Thomas Docherty
Thomas Docherty’s new picture book sees a return to his nostalgic, classic storytelling style. Introducing Ruby, a magical little girl with improbable dreams. Ruby and her friends want a place to play, but their playground only has one old swing and a broken slide. Magic always finds its way to Ruby, however – when she plants her ice lolly stick in the ground, a magnificent playground begins to grow! Soon, Ruby and her friends are aboard the playground, stopping traffic and causing others to take
note of their plight.
Writing with his wife, Helen, Greenaway award shortlisted illustrator Thomas Docherty introduces the reader to children with different abilities and social backgrounds in this story.
