A new book from author Deborah Abela

A heart-warming story about a girl who’s too afraid to follow her dreams, and the family who help make them happen.

India Wimple can spell. Brilliantly. Every Friday night, she and her family huddle in front of the TV in their small house and watch the Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee. When her family suggest she should enter the next Bee, she shrugs it off, saying being on TV is only for rich and pretty people. Her family won’t hear it and encourage India to sign up. But there are plenty of obstacles to reaching the finals: something in her past has made India terribly, horribly shy, the Wimples aren’t very well off, and moving on to each round costs more than the Wimples can afford. And finally, there’s Summer Millicent Ernestine Beauregard-Champion, a spoilt rich girl who is also a champion speller and Summer isn’t afraid to step on anyone who gets in her way.

We have just received the second book in this series in our library.

India Wimple is off on another splendid spelling adventure!

In London, India is reunited with her friends Rajish and Summer. They meet new spellers, and are invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen.

But there is skulduggery afoot, with a series of mysterious mishaps. There is even talk of cancelling the competition altogether.

India and her friends are determined to find out who the culprit is and get the spelling bee back on track.

Sharing inspiring stories from Australia’s past with the children who are our future!

A note from the author, Stephanie Owen Reeder

“In my award-winning Heritage Heroes series I retell true stories from Australia’s past featuring ordinary children and young people who have achieved amazing things against the odds. These are inspirational stories which delve into Australia’s history. Each stand-alone book in the series tells the story of a particular child, bringing their history to life in novel format, with information sections at the end of each chapter presenting extra historical detail.

The Heritage Heroes books are based on exhaustive research, and aim to provide children with an interesting and exciting entrée to the past, as well as a good read. Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, the books feature stunning images from the collections of the National Library of Australia, as well as an epilogue, a glossary and a list of background reading material. Four Heritage Heroes titles have been published so far, and I am currently working on the fifth, which is set in 1914 in the South Australian outback and will be available in 2019.”
