Casson Family: Forever Rose: Book 5 - Casson Family (Paperback)Hilary McKay (author)
- Not available
From the winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2018. Meet Saffy, Indigo, Rose and Caddy Casson. This colourful and hilarious series will make you wish you were part of the family!
It's tough being the youngest.
Rose comes home to a dark, quiet, empty house every day - her sisters and brother are always so busy. Indigo has his guitar lessons and paper round, Saffy is off with Sarah, and who knows where Caddy is since she disappeared with Michael's postcards.
School isn't any better. SATs are looming, and vindictive Mr Spencer has cancelled Christmas!
When will Rose get the happy ever after she has read about in books?
'Makes everything you wish for come true' Sunday Times
The first book in the series, Saffy's Angel, won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and book 3, Permanent Rose, was shortlisted for the same award, celebrating McKay's talent for conveying the anarchic bedlam of family life.
