Lilac in Black and White
by Christine Doran
Ten-year-old Lilac lives by the sea with her big, bounding puppy, Guzzler. When her class takes a trip to the local aquarium Lilac decides on a mission, and while the town rallies to raise money for the building, she and her friends embark on a madcap crusade to rescue the penguins.
A delightful tale of whimsical adventure for discerning readers of 9-12, and the first of three books about Lilac.
