A Safe Place by Lucy Marcovitch


A Safe Place by Lucy Marcovitch

Kyla, Leo and Dad are visiting Granny on her birthday. Kyla wants to carry the present and promises to put it in a safe place. But on the very long journey, by foot, bus and train, she keeps leaving it behind. Dad takes over, but can he do any better?


Children will enjoy spotting where the present has been left each time and there is also the interest of a journey through town and countryside -- Jennifer Taylor School Library Association
