There's a new collection of Lolo stories coming in June – You're a Star, Lolo!

Great South African writer Niki Daly has created an enchanting new heroine in these two story collections, with more to come. Children love to engage with Lolo and her everyday adventures. Paperback originals, they make ideal early readers.

Of the first two, Red Reading Hub says: "Both titles have four stories each just the right length to consume in a single sitting … lots of gentle humour that will win Lolo lots of friends among young readers"

Here Comes Lolo 9781910959770; Hooray for Lolo 9781910959695; You're a Star, Lolo! 9781913074913

 Latest on Niki Daly – he is a nominee for the 2020 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award: the world's prime honour for children's book authors
