A twin banished . . . an unbreakable bond . . . an unlikely fairytale. Sometimes a disaster is just a disaster, and nothing good can be said about it.
But sometimes a disaster is an excuse for a fresh start. Arabella and Henrietta are twins. If you saw them, you'd find it very hard to tell them apart.
But once you get to know them, you'll discover that although they look alike, that's where the similarity ends . . . Henrietta is a constant headache for her parents-always causing problems and upset.
Why, oh why can't she be more like Arabella? Sent away to live with strange Aunt Renfrew, Henrietta wonders if she'll ever see Arabella again.
But the bond between sisters is strong, and even stronger when your sister is also your twin and your best friend. And so Arabella begins her journey through the forest to find Henrietta . . . A contemporary and unique fairytale for modern readers.
Perfect for fans of books by Emma Carroll and Michelle Harrison. [Review from Booklist] 'With an abundance of quirky characters and odd plotlines that call to mind Roald Dahl or Lemony Snicket, this first novel offers a gently mischievous exploration of both family ties and sibling rivalry.
Young readers will laugh at the foolish adults, who cannot remember what is important in life, while Siebel's message of self-reliance comes through loud and clear.'
