Ellie and the Sea Monster (RA8 IA8-12)
Ellie is no ordinary Princess. She is determined to reach the Hill of Promises in time for the setting of the Second Sun and cast her very own wish. If that means fighting through forests, sailing sea-turtles and scaling over mountains and river rapids then so be it. However, stumbling across a surprisingly well-spoken Sea Monster wasn't part of the plan. Could he be more than he seems? Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+
Vivian was first published in 1990, a natural progression after careers in the theatre, in counselling and in storytelling. Since then, she has established an enviable reputation as a writer of integrity and imagination, a writer illustrators love to work with, and a writer her readers want to meet. Despite publishing well over 200 titles, Vivian has led a very busy life away from her keyboard conducting writing workshops for both children and adults, teaching at Edinburgh College of Art, and mentoring new writers and illustrators. Vivian lives in Edinburgh.
