Finding Serendipity

‘What you would have seen is this: a girl and a dog disappearing, as if a door had opened and then closed in the vast darkness of the night sky.’

Finding Serendipity

Co-authored by Heather Rose & Danielle Wood under their pen-name Angelica Banks, Finding Serendipity is the first book in an internationally acclaimed series for primary age readers grades 3 to 6. This a story of everyday (and not so everyday) magic, wild adventure, courage in the face of fearsome pirates, and the power of friendship. A novel that is not simply wonderful story-telling, it’s also an invitation to become a writer yourself.

This series is published in Australia by Allen & Unwin, Germany by Magellan and the USA by Henry Holt.
