Aunty Edna of Duck Creek Pond
Illustrated with typically beautiful artwork by Lisa Allen, this is a wonderfully witty story of wise Aunty Edna and two ‘lovebirds’ swans Romeo and Juliet. The parents of Black Swan Romeo and White Swan Juliet forbid them to meet, but will wise Aunty Edna find a way to persuade them that true love can conquer all?
