Adventure and Imagination: Meet the Characters from Willa and Woof by Jacqueline Harvey

From the bestselling author of Alice-Miranda comes this humorous and heartfelt series about eight-year-old Willa and her best four-legged friend, Woof! Meet Willa and her three best friends:

Willa

Eight-year-old Willa Tait has a vivid imagination, a head full of ideas and a strong desire to do the right thing – all of which often lands her in trouble of her own (accidental!) making. With the help of Woof, Tae and Frank, Willa’s usually able to set things right again.

Woof

Woof is Willa’s best four-legged friend. His real name is Wilfred, but when Willa was little she couldn’t quite wrap her tongue around that, so ‘Wilfred’ became ‘Wilf’ and ‘Wilf’ became ‘Woof’ and it stuck.

Tae

Tae Jin Miller is Willa’s best same-age friend. He lives across the road. His name means ‘person of greatness’ in Korean, so Tae spends a lot of time trying to figure out what kind of person of greatness he is going to be.

Frank

Francis Pickles is Willa’s best old-age friend. He lives in a villa at Sunset Views Retirement Village. There’s a gate in Willa’s side fence that leads straight into Frank’s yard, so it’s easy for Willa to pop over and visit!

      Adventure, imagination and loads of fun.

      From the bestselling author of Alice-Miranda comes this humorous and heartfelt series about eight-year-old Willa and her best four-legged friend, Woof!

      Willa’s in trouble. Mimi – the famous racing pigeon owned by Frank, her neighbour and best old-aged friend – is missing. And Willa is pretty sure she’s the one who left the cage door open . . .

      She’ll need her most creative ideas (along with the help of Tae, her best same-age friend, and her trusty sidekick Woof, the albino Irish Wolfhound) to track Mimi down before Frank finds out!

      Can Willa find Mimi before it’s too late?
