Lily the elf
the midnight owl
anna branford * lisa coutts
Lily the elf lives with her dad in a tiny house, hidden near a bridge in a busy city, while Granny Small lives in a granny flat behind Lily’s house. From finding hidden treasures to making wishes on dandelion seeds, Lily and her family share delightful adventures. The Lily the Elf series is perfectly pitched for newly independent readers, finding magic in the everyday with simple sentence structure, short chapters, black-and-white illustrations, a large font and lots of white space, all designed for easy and well-supported reading.
In The Midnight Owl, Lily is frightened when the midnight owl hoots during the night. But Granny Small isn't afraid. She thinks the midnight owl sounds friendly. Will Lily always be afraid of him?
