Nelly and the Quest for Captain Peabody

Roland Chambers

One girl. One turtle. One epic voyage! If you like Pippi Longstocking, you'll love Nelly Peabody.

When Nelly says she's going to do a thing, she does it, whatever it is.

Learn to juggle china cups? Of course!

Live on lemons for a month? Why not?

Set out in a boat with knitted sails to find her long-lost father, with only her turtle Columbus for company? Absolutely!

And she won't let anything get in her way . . .

Readership : 7-9. If you like Pippi Longstocking, you'll love Nelly Peabody.
