Noni the pony goes to the beach

Alison Lester
Allen & Unwin
ISBN: 9781743311141           RRP: $24.99

In her second story, Noni and friends Coco the cat and Dave the dog are joined by the ladies next door – a herd of cows from a neighbouring farm. While the others play beach games and splash about in the water, Coco likes to keep dry. Dave on the other hand becomes too adventurous and needs rescuing! The signature illustrations with simple execution of outlined watercolour drawings in glowing colour as always add a touch of warmth to the story. Plush toys of Noni are already available!
