Meet D'Lila LaRue, whsoe 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...


Nette Hilton has worked in many jobs from governess to teacher, tax clerk to receptionist/telephonist and all sorts in between. Her life as a writer began when her daughter, Emma, began to really hate going to school and she set out to write a book to help her through it. Since then, Nette has become an award-winning author with more than twenty years of experience. She grew up in Victoria but has lived in Sydney since the age of eleven. Her Princess Peony books are set to become classics of their genre.


These are charming stories with surprising and funny twists. … There is a timelessness to these stories

Reading Time

This is a book that I think will appeal to younger independent readers as the layout of the book makes it an easy read. There are three distinct stories with large text, colourful illustrations and short chapters. This is a book that would also work in a classroom read aloud situation.
