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 …”

“Great fun. It goes at a cracking pace and girls will love it.”

TOP 5 FRIDAY: Castles
Oh, to be lord or lady of one's own castle. The turrets! The moats! The ... other castley bits! Unfortunately, unless you're a royal in medieval Germany or a knight of the round table, the likeliness of owning your own castle is slim - luckily, there's a ton of children's books out there which describe beautiful castles so vividly that you almost feel like you're there living in them.
