About the book
Nonie’s passion is fashion. Humanitarian Edie wants to save the world. And budding actress Jenny has just landed a small part in a Hollywood blockbuster.
But when these three friends meet a young African refugee girl called Crow sketching a dress at the Victoria and Albert Museum, they get the chance to pool their talents and do something truly wonderful, proving that fashion fairy tales really can happen.
Vibrant, contemporary and engaging, this – the winner of the Times/Chicken House Children's Fiction Competition 2009 – is a wonderfully haute couture read for girls 10+.
“A treat ... elegant and funny and has real narrative verve. ”
“Exhilarating, entertaining and refreshing …”
JONATHAN DOUGLAS, NATIONAL LITERARY TRUST
“Great fun. It goes at a cracking pace and girls will love it.”
