Introducing ‘Penelope and Frida and the Mystery Creature'...

Penelope (Peach) and Frida (Pineapple) meet a mystery creature who is lost and far from home. Can they trust their new friend, and help him find his way before it is too late? A colourful, vibrant tale which gently explores the importance of both compassion and resilience, as well as the power of friendship.
