She deals admirably with moving house, starting a new school and meeting new people.
We loved this tenacious little character with her fabulous attitude and sense of determination.
Pearl’s introduction to her new school is met with a boy who under estimates her power, determination and strength of character.
Despite his attempts to embarrass and tease Pearl, she rises above his mean actions and comments and she shows him a thing or two about female achievement, coupled with kindness.
Mel Elliott‘s rhyming tale is a real pleasure to read and it’s refreshing to see a strong female with an air of sensibility and a kind nature. Gender equality is finally being addressed and here’s to more feisty female leads.
A great role model for young readers and a refreshing change for picture books.
