$20.00 Inc GST

A delightfully fantastical story for middle-grade readers that sparkles with magic and mystery. Perfect for Emily Rodda fans.

No matter how much Olive longs for a pet rabbit, it's never going to happen. Not when she lives in an Australian country town where most people think they're a pest.

So imagine Olive's shock when she unexpectedly finds not one, but one hundred and one rabbits. And one of them can talk!

How Olive will ever be able to hide and protect the rabbits is going to be her greatest challenge, and all while preparing for the Year 5 play. At least she has her costume ready, although the old top hat she found in the local op-shop seems very odd …

Perfect for fans of Emily Rodda, The Hats of Marvello is a delightful, magical adventure story that will keep readers spellbound.

' … children's fantasy at its best – sparkling, funny, clever, original, filled with suspense – and white rabbits! I adored every minute I spent inside the pages of this story.'

– Katrina Nannestad

About the Author: Amanda has enjoyed writing and drawing since she was young. In Year Three she wrote and illustrated her first story. It was about a group of adventurous mice who travelled to the moon. After discovering it was made of green cheese, they ate it.

Later Amanda wrote stories for children while studying to be a primary school teacher. Her first published book, Arthur, was illustrated by Donna Gynell (Era Publications). Watching Donna bring words to life through pictures inspired Amanda to study illustration and create the artwork for some of her own stories.

Amanda lives in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. When she's not working in her studio, you'll likely find her teaching at a local school, puddling about in the back garden, or rambling somewhere through the bush.
