Aunt Concertina and Her Niece Evalina by Paula Green
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Aunt Concertina and her niece Evalina is a wondrous book - a feast of words and a visual feast of stunning paintings. Aunt Concertina is an avid junk shop shopper who takes her unwilling niece along with her and, to Evalina's great delight, they find a magic kite which takes them on adventures throughout the world. They go to Mt Everest, the Nile, a volcano, Greenland, the Sahara, Venezeula, Tokyo, the Amazon and finally back home to their own special place. It's a whirlwind of exploration. Every page is jam-packed with delight - there is so much to find in every extraordinarily detailed illustration and the language is rich in the kind of detail that children will love.
