Introducing D’Lila LaRue

By Nette Hilton
Illustrated by A. Yi

Meet D'Lila LaRue, whose charm and pizzazz will leave readers wanting more!

D’Lila LaRue lives in the smallest house with the neatest fence and the rosiest garden in the street with her trusty sidekick, Nanny-Anny (who is probably very old but it doesn’t matter). This trilogy of stories features D’Lila and Nanny-Anny sharing many fun-filled adventures, whether it's by building an award-winning rose garden, becoming an artist, or attending a favourite play. Even if things don't go exactly to plan . . .

  • These delightful stories from two beloved Australian creators feature endearing characters that will entice young readers to engage in imaginative storytelling
  • With large readable type and a combination of vignette and double spread illustrations, the ratio of text to graphics is perfect for beginning readers who like to be read to and conquer longer stories themselves.
  • The subject matter of each of the stories and the order in which they appear are specially chosen to appeal to 5 to 8 year old readers. They begin close to home in the garden and move slowly out into the wider community.
