Synopsis

Pretty Pru by Polly Dunbar

Where is it? And who took it? No one is prepared to own up - but it can't remain a secret for long when her friends are wearing the evidence!

Utterly charming artwork, delicious palette, gentle humour and winsome characters have deservedly made this a series of winners. This title comes from the bestselling author and illustrator of Penguin which was the winner of the 0-5 Nestle Silver Award 2007 and the 2007 Booktrust Early Years Award in the pre-school category.
