Synopsis

The Lilac Ladies by Jenny Hughes

This 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.

About the Author

Jenny Hughes was born and raised in rural Australia, the second-youngest of six children. Her working career took her in many directions, but nothing seemed to 'fit'. Finally she followed her heart and began to write. Jenny now lives in Orange, New South Wales with her scruffy little dog, Scruffy. She plans to keep writing until she's a little old lady. The Lilac Ladies is her first picture book. Jonathan Bentley has been an Editorial Illustrator at the Courier Mail newspaper for ten years, and has illustrated books for Margaret Wild, The Wiggles and Andrew Daddo. His most recent titles include A Hare, A Hound and Shy Mousey Brown and And Red Galoshes, and Pink!
