A delightfully feel-good novel from the author of Away With the Penguins.
Veronica McCreedy can't resist the promise of adventure. . .
Nine-year-old Daisy and nearly ninety-year-old Veronica make an unlikely pair of friends.
Fiercely independent and impeccably dressed, Veronica has lived an incredible 87 years. Most of them alone, in her huge house by the sea. But with the arrival of brave and resilient Daisy into her life, Veronica finds she has a renewed thirst for adventure - and that they both share a passion for penguins!
So when Veronica and Daisy are invited to travel to the other side of the world together and visit the penguins of the southern hemisphere, they both jump at the chance. Veronica had thought her days of new friendships, family and love were over, but perhaps it's never too late for one more adventure?
