Zola loves where she lives in Boomerang Street with her Mum, her Nonna and her cousin close by.

Zola’s Nonna loves her garden, but she has very strict rules about how things must be done - rules that Zola does not always follow! How much trouble can one girl cause?

This is the first in a seven book series and readers will love following Zola’s adventures every day, and Zola is an impulsive and lovable main character.

Although Melina Marchetta is best-known for her books for older readers, in her typical style the Zola books have a range of wonderful supporting characters as well, with Zola’s Nonna a particular highlight.

A perfect first chapter book that younger readers will thoroughly enjoy. The Zola series will suit readers in Year 2 and up.
