Description of this Book
Abigail's world is full of colour and possibility - each day she explores new characters through creative outfits she designs in her tree-house. But will old Sally Pepper next door manage to convince Abigail that being a 'grown-up' is better ?
Find out in this delightful rhyming story by New Zealand author Latesha Randall and illustrator Esther Tattersall, that is charming children and adults alike.
"The message in the Abigail Knightly story is for children to be able to be naturally explorative and inquisitive, and to be creative and not feel pressured into fitting into any kind of box in terms of expressing themselves"
Author Latesha Randall.

Latesha (Tesh) Randall lives in beautiful Raglan, on the west coast of NZ. She has loved writing since she was old enough to realise that letters strung together could make words, and she published her first children's story Button Thief at age 19. Tesh writes for several newspapers and magazines and is well-known around Raglan for the coconut yoghurt enterprise she and her fiance Seb run together there. Like Abigail, Tesh has an extensive collection of hats and brightly-coloured clothes, and hopes that this beautifully-illustrated little story inspires some fun in the children who get to read it. The story is complemented by the beautiful and whimsical illustrations of Esther Tattersall who lives in Whangarei. A mother of three small children herself, she frequently finds herself picking up discarded costumes from around the house and garden and reminding Batman to take his shoes off before he comes inside !
