The Sugar and Spice Collection

$39.99

In these three delightful stories, fairies, ponies and ballerinas come out to play!

In Dance with Me, a ballerina in a music box loves nothing more than to dance. But when the little girl who owns the box grows up, who will dance with the ballerina then? A gorgeous story about treasured possessions and the memories they hold.

In Patch and Ruby, Patch the pony is lonely. Sometimes it feels as if he doesn’t quite fit in on the farm. But one day something happens that changes his life forever. A wonderful tale about friendship and finding out where you belong.

In The Great Sock Secret, Sarah’s mother is tired of finding odd socks in the laundry basket. Where do all the missing socks go? Sarah knows. But her mother mustn’t find out! A fantastical adventure into an imaginative fairy-filled world.

Beautifully presented in a slipcase, these contemporary stories on traditional themes combine to create a modern classic.

SPECIFICATIONS: Slipcase | 245 x 255 mm / 9½ x 10 Inches | Colour | 96 Pages (3 x 32 Pages) |

Dance with Me
“I can’t help but hear Frank Mill’s, Music Box Dancer in my head when I read about the beautiful pink clad ballerina who ‘lived in a small, wooden box.”

Patch and Ruby
Jones’s narrative is warm and restrained enough to sustain short attention spans whilst the illustrations excite the tactile senses and illicit quite a bit of cheeky humour. Keep an eye out for the chook in rollers. So clever.”

The Great Sock Secret
“I love how the fairies rule supreme in this toe-levelled view about one of the first world’s most cryptic mysteries: where do all the odd socks go? Jones’s eye-popping illustrations are phenomenal”


Kirkus Reviews
The Great Sock Secret
“Jones’ artwork has a soft line, matter-of-factly combining the mundane with the fantastic. These fairies look like good fun, ready for some mischief, like taking command of all those missing socks … Like Sarah, readers will breathe a sigh of relief when her mother abandons her search for the socks—and maybe they’ll start peeking around for fairies in their own homes. (Picture book. 4-8)”
