Once upon a different time, there was a magic town called Rhyme, where absolutely everything and everybody was made of letters and words. This colourful rhyming picture book tells the story of the devastation caused when young witch Isabella (lovely girl but a rotten speller) paid an unexpected visit to this word-based nation. This original, funny book, with characters and animals made entirely of letters, will engage and entertain young readers - and hopefully inspire them to create their own letter characters. Parents will love its humour and originality more

About Peta Rainford

Peta Rainford grew up on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England, so long ago she can remember dancing to the Bay City Rollers, Saturday mornings watching Multi-coloured Swap Shop and buying crisps from the school tuck shop for 21/2p.

It was a revelation to her: a way of combining picture making with her love of words - not to mention an outlet for her awful jokes. It may have taken more than four decades, but finally, Peta knows what she wants to do when she grows more
