A House of Her Own

Audrey is bigger than she was yesterday. Now she needs a bigger house. So she tells her dad to build her one.

Dotingly Audrey's dad sets about building the tree house of her dreams complete with a spiral staircase, a banister for sliding, a bathtub for snorkelling and a place to drink tea. It is perfect in every way. Except for one thing...

A House of Her Own is a gently humorous story written by Jenny Hughes that explores the clash between a quest for independence and the longing for security.

Internationally acclaimed illustrator Jonathan Bentley has captured all that is wonderful about fathers and their little girls in every picture.

Tara Rankine brings added warmth and sensitivity to the reading of this delightful book.
