Beautiful Arabella by Gloria Loring

Beautiful Arabella follows her sister Leonora to the Beautiful Garden, but things don’t go quite as expected

When stars look down, they are enchanted by the Beautiful Garden.

Arabella’s sister, Shiny Star Leonora, has already visited the Beautiful Garden. Now Arabella is filled with a desire to follow in her sister’s footsteps and have her own adventures. Her wish is granted, but not in the way she expects. She awakes as a caterpillar!

Through her own struggles she discovers the beauty and purpose of flowers and plants. And then there is the curious and peckish sparrow.

Shiny Star Leonora introduced us to The Beautiful Garden. Now Arabella invites us to share her adventure.

Illustrated throughout with Gloria’s beautiful paintings, this lovely book is aimed at older children.
