Lemonade Jones – a feisty girl with a lot of fizz! A warm, funny story for the beginning reader about the girl who likes to ask lots of questions and does NOT like rules.
A haunted house. A giant rainbow slide. And delicious donuts from Clark Dark’s dad’s donut van. Lemonade Jones’s school fete is going to be as sparkly and fun as a shook-up bottle of fizzy drink.
Most exciting of all is the Year One Mum Band. Lemonade Jones has talked her mum into being the lead singer, and everyone knows that the lead singer is the star.
This is going to be the greatest school fete ever!
