Elizabella Breaks a Leg

Book 4 of Elizabella Series

Age 8+

Children's & Young Adult Fiction & True Stories

A visiting cousin, a new girlfriend and theatrical mischief and mayhem abound in another uniquely funny addition to the beloved 'Elizabella' series.

It's the end of the year and everything is changing at Bilby Creek. Elizabella and her gang are about to become seniors, cousin Isabeth comes to stay and Toddberry (or "Todd" as he insists on being called now) gets a girlfriend! Not to mention huge news from Minnie which could turn everything upside down. With all that going on, there may be just enough room for another Elizabella prank or two before the curtains close on Year Four...

After an excursion to the theatre, Elizabella is determined to put on a play at school. And while Mr Gobblefrump agrees, he insists on a budget of exactly zero dollars. Can she pull it off? With a little help from her friends, you never know. Good luck, Elizabella - or "Break a leg" as they say!

I enjoyed this book immensely. Intelligently and sensitively written, there is lots of fun and silliness here, but also a great deal of heart
