Our Girl Heroes

There are so many fabulous feminine characters in the shop at the moment, protagonists who make stories a delight to read, who inspire and encourage, who are brave and clever! Go Girls! Here are some of our favourite girls!

Truly Tan by Jen Storer

We love Tan! She is Australian, and is written by the fabulous Jen Storer, a Melbournian! Tan is the youngest of three sisters, she has moved to the country with her family, she is funny, clever and engaging, you will wish she was your best friend!

Ruby Redfort by Lauren Child

The second Ruby Redfort novel 'Take Your Last Breath' is here! Ruby is back! The girl wonder detective is solving mysteries, heading out to sea and swimming with sharks! You'll have to read it to believe it!

Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage

Moses Le Beau (please call her Mo for short) was orphaned as a baby during a hurricane in a strange small town in the swampy part of the U.S.A. Like all clever ladies she keeps a diary, takes karate classes, helps out in the Piggly Wiggly diner with her best friend Dale and during one eventful summer begins to solve many a mystery, including a suspicious murder!

The Abominables by Eva Ibbotson

Agatha Farlingham is the daughter of an English earl, but on a trek through the Himalayan mountains Agatha is kidnapped by a family of Yetis who she befriends. She teaches them to speak, have good manners and generally devotes her life to them. Brave Agatha protects the yetis from humans who want to hurt them and is an impressive warrior for the lovely Yeti creatures!
