BEE makes it to New Zealand!
The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody (Beholding Bee in the US) is a staff favorite of Heidi Voorendt.
Here is her lovely review.
"A beautiful, touching story about an orphan girl who works in a travelling carnival where she is bullied and taunted daily because of a birthmark on her face. When a scruffy dog turns up Beatrice decides to run away with him. Joined by a piglet named Cordelia and with help from a mysterious old lady, they set of to find an new home. With a wonderful cast of characters and themes of lose, love, friendship and acceptance, it is perfect for fans of Eva Ibbotson and Katherine Ruundell.
