The Lilac Ladies by Jenny HughesThis is a moving story of the bind and joys of friendship. Charming illustrations and a playful text, tackle a difficult subject with care and compassion. It includes illustrations from Jonathan Bentley, illustrator of A Hare, A Hound and Shy Mousey Brown and Pink! The Iilac ladies - Nelly, Ida, Rose and Maisie are as close as the 'prickles on a porcupine' and enjoy their golden years together. Nelly is their rock and pinnacle to much of their fun. However, the ladies must learn to love life without her. Jonathan Bentley's (A Hare, A Hound and Shy Mousey Brown, Pink!) charming illustrations capture the joys of friendship and Jenny Hughes' text lightens the mood of this difficult subject.
