Madame Badobedah and The Old Bones

‘A real sparkler.”

Jessica Love

A warm-hearted story celebrating friendship and imagination that will have young readers yearning for adventure and finding it all around them.

The Mermaid Hotel is a place that’s spilling with mystery. Mabel has lived there since she was a baby, and likes to keep an eye on the comings and goings of all the guests. But there’s one particular guest, now a RESIDENT, who proves the most interesting, the enigmatic Madame Badobedah. When Madame Badobedah’s around, there’s always an adventure to be had. She’s pirouetted through pyramids, sailed with pirates, swum with mermaids and has a banshee in a drawer. Who else would help a Triceratops with a toothache? In this latest caper, she and Mabel are on a mission to return a priceless emerald to the Natural History Museum. And while they’re there, they might just bump into a very old friend…

A sparky celebration of adventuring and multigenerational friendship, the book features historical female explorers, including Mary Anning, Zora Neale Hurston and Amelia Earhart.
