ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Milly loves her town - so nice they named it twice - but people keep leaving. More importantly, the members in her netball team are dwindling! So when she learns about refugees with nowhere to live, she sends out an invitation to them, with the help of her colourful Granny Mac. A rather lovely and welcoming story, with simple but expressive illustrations, that is based on a true story of how a dying rural town found a way to survive and thrive again. Ages 4-7 Lindy Jones

Milly loves the small town she lives in and she loves playing basketball with her friends. The trouble is, families keep leaving, and soon they won't have enough players for a team. But when Milly learns at school about the refugees who have nowhere to live, she has a great idea - invite them to Gong Gong!
