Plum Puddings and Paper Moons
By Glenda MillardI've been looking forward to reading this installment of Millard's Kingdom of Silk series of books. Since starting to read the books, I have thought that the Rainbow Girls have had a bit of a raw deal.
Now it seems Scarlet, the oldest of the girls is getting her day in the spotlight.
"Plum Puddings and Paper Moons" explores issues dealing with refugees. It also shows that these very big issues aren't too big for ordinary people to get involved. Big wishes and small acts of kindness can build up and make changes in the way people think and act. If every one does just a little bit, the world could be a better place.
As always, Glenda's writing has it's own magic. Her descriptive passages lend vivid colour to the reader's imagination.
