A runaway hot air balloon, a parrot in search of a new home, and the dastardly Lou-Ella hot on their heels - Dixie and Percy are Up, Up and Away!

Praise for Dixie O'Day: Up, Up and Away!

With text and pictures beautifully complementing one another, these tales of peril and domestic perplexity are a dream to read aloud and tempting for newly fluent readers to manage on their own. Established fans will appreciate familiar characters putting in a cheerful appearance, while those new to the books can revel in the excitement of a story that stands confidently alone. Meanwhile end papers complete with chatty questionnaires, maps and games all add to the satisfying sense of a fully-formed world in miniature.
