Synopsis

Moving House by Jenny Hatton

A delightful new series by Jenny Hatton exquisitely brought to life by award-winning illustrator, Joan Rankin. Children will easily relate to the stories which reflect true to life events such as going on a journey, moving house and a visit to the beach. The rhythmic text of the Lucy books will help build children's reading skills and confidence while they are absorbed in the humorous illustrations and the lives of Lucy's family.
