Isabella is a little girl with a big imagination! Her friends are her soft toys, who join her on her adventures. Whether it be rowing on boats, sitting under magical umbrellas, going to gymnastics or just exploring the woods, Isabella will always find a way to make it magical!I

The “Isabella” stories are perfect for children who are getting to grips with reading to themselves, and having stories read to them. They can engage with the illustrations and play along with Isabella and her friends. They may even inspire young imaginations to look around them when they are out on walks or days out. Will Isabella help you to find magic on your trips to the beach, or to dance class, or even at school?
