It has taken Perry Angel almost seven years to find the place where he belongs.
He arrives at the Kingdom of Silk one day on the ten-thirty express, carrying only a small and shabby suitcase embossed with five golden letters. What do those letters mean? And why won′t Perry let go of his case?
This is a gentle and moving story about finding your place in the world -- and there could be no better place than with Griffin Silk, his family and his best friend, Layla.
Following on from the success of The Naming of Tishkin Silk and Layla, Queen of Hearts comes this third instalment in Glenda Millard′s award-winning Kingdom of Silk series.
The Naming of Tishkin Silk was shortlisted for the 2004 NSW Premier′s Literary Awards and was an Honour book in the CBCA Children′s Book of the Year Awards. Layla, Queen of Hearts was shortlisted in the CBCA Children′s Book of the Year Awards and won the 2007 Queensland Premier′s Literary Award for best children′s book.
Perry Angel′s Suitcase was shortlisted in the NSW Premier′s Literary Awards and the WA Premier′s Literary Awards and won the CBCA Book of the Year Award for Younger Readers.
