The fourth book in this series for younger readers sparkles like its star—Lilac Peabody. As small, quick and shimmery as a dragonfly, Lilac is a friend indeed to all children in need—empowering them to solve their own problems and then disappearing as soon as she is no longer required. Lilac Peabody is a small and shimmery little alien being who flits around helping children and tackles any challenge presented. Sometimes she's an intergalactic party-planner, at others a cosmic beachcomber—but always a friend to any child that needs her. Lilac Peabody empowers children to solve their own problems and then disappears once they have achieved their aims. Honey Hope is a bully. She teases and taunts, sniggers and sneers. But why is she so mean? What lies behind her unappealing behaviour? Lilac attaches herself to Honeysuckle to find out and, as with the other children, Honey is all the better for it. This story ends with a party, and for the first time all four children from the book series discover their common friendship with Lilac Peabody! but by this time, Lilac has moved on! Annie Dalton has created this wonderful character for younger readers, very much in the mould of Mel Beeby from Angels Unlimited, though Lilac is no angel!! Smart and sassy, yet sensitive and self-aware, Lilac speaks to children—both her readers and the stars of her stories—in a way they can understand and, at the same time, respect.
