Zola's curiosity gets her into trouble!

The bestselling YA author of Looking for Alibrandi and The Place on Dalhousie is back, and this time she's writing for six-year-olds!  It was having her very own precious, intelligent yet reluctant-to-read daughter that inspired Melina to pen a new story filled with humour and mischief using simple language and quick chapters.

Discover the inspiration for this series in Melina Marchetta on Zola (article).

Recommended for ages 6–8. Find the whole series in your local bookstore, released throughout 2020–2021.
