It's Fleur the flamingo's birthday and her friend Bo the hippo is sending her a present. Can you use Bo's clues to guess what it is?
Could it be ice-cream mountains to slide down, or ten-tiered cakes for all the town? Or maybe it's the best present of all - a big hug from your best friend.
This gorgeously illustrated and brilliantly imaginative birthday treat celebrates friendship, giving - and birthdays!
About the Author
Catherine Pelosi is a Sydney-based children's book author. When she was younger, she loved two things in equal measure: animals and writing stories. For a long time she wanted to be a zoologist. Catherine has had several jobs working with animals, including in wildlife rescue, as a dinosaur tour guide and marketing for an animal shelter in London, but her love of writing never went away. These days, she writes as often as she can. Catherine hasn't lost her love of animals, however, and you will often find one or two roaming through her stories. Quark's Academy
is Catherine's first novel; Something For Fleur
is her first picture book.
From the futuristic travel capsule that transports the students to the chemical compounds that enhance memory, the scientific principles of Quark's Academy toe the line brilliantly between science-fiction and reality. Catherine Pelosi's QUARK'S ACADEMY is an engaging and entertaining debut for readers aged eight and up with an interest in STEM - or those who just love a well-paced adventure story with fantastical elements. - BOOKS+PUBLISHING on Catherine Pelosi's QUARK'S ACADEMY
