Tilly and the Blue Pearl by Angela McAllister


Tilly and the Blue Pearl by Angela McAllister

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey. Tilly is a mermaid, and it's her best friend Marina's birthday soon. Tilly wants to find her the perfect present. When she sees a beautiful blue pearl in the spooky Seaweed Forest, she knows exactly what to give Marina - a necklace! But getting the pearl is more difficult than it seems - will Tilly be brave enough to do it? A delightful story from the author of THE PIRATES' PICNIC, set in a beautiful underwater world brought to life by illustrator Maxine Lee.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
