New Kingdom of Silk
Plum Puddings and Paper Moons, Glenda Millard (ABC Books)
The fifth book in the multi-award-winning and much-loved Kingdom of Silk series.
It’s almost Christmas in Cameron’s Creek and it’s a time for wishes, big and small.
But Scarlet, the oldest of the Rainbow Girls, is not so sure if wishes can come true.
The kitchen at the Kingdom of Silk is warm and sweet with the smell of buttery shortbread and steamed plum puddings. And in the kitchen of the Colour Patch Café, Scarlet has made a new friend, Anik.
When Anik tells Scarlet about his home far away and of all the things he has lost, Scarlet is determined to make a difference. And so she decides to declare peace on Cameron’s Creek, and maybe even the world.
We have loved the Kingdom of Silk series since the wonderful The Naming of Tishkin Silk and we are so excited about this latest offering from the brilliant Glenda Millard (and love the beautiful, whimsical illustrations by Stephen Michael King).
