Another New Zealand author to cheer on!

Sue - June 2022

Another New Zealand author and publication to cheer on! “A vibrant contemporary fairytale about an independent princess…” “Do you need rescuing from this tower? He asked her. No, she said I like it here.” …meet the princess who lived in a tower by the sea. Content with her quiet place and tending to duties – ‘looking after the light that shone at night to keep the ships safe’…Never lonely. After a daring rescue of a boy after a coastal storm, her isolation is questioned… Vivid, vibrant illustrations from award winning illustrator Rose Northey, compliment the clever narrative that comes together for a wonderful thoughtful story. This can be read to the younger members of your whanau or older ones can read this themselves as it is a poignant tale.
