Shortlisted for the Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation 2013 Little Hamda wants to wear the veil, like her big sisters, but it's up to her to find her own special way and prove she's grown up, just like her sisters. Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with children, this Early reader chapter book has a delightful story and is complemented by bright, funny pictures on every page together with a lively design which makes them hugely appealing. They’re perfect for children from 5-7...

Retold by the author of the Tiara Club series.
