Ever since we first met Zola a year ago, readers have been following her adventures as she brings her community together and now all the connections reach their pinnacle at the St Otto’s Community Fete. Their is the stall of the knitting group that Zola and her nonna belong to; her friend Leo’s mum is going to be givng a demonstration about how police dogs work in the community; her other nonna will be hosting the organic produce stall and her mum will have the cake stall. As well there are competitions and all sorts of other attractions. Will Zola be able to get through the fete without any of the drama and strife she seems to attract?
This is the final in this series that has had young readers enthralled and Zola and her friends have become friends of the reader too. And for those who have not yet met Zola, then there is a treat in store. A must-have for anyone with a reader who is just embarking on novels but needs the textual supports as well as the familiarity of characters and situations to consolidate their skills.
