Description - The Cleo Stories 1: The Necklace and the Present by Libby Gleeson

WINNER: CBCA Book of the Year, Younger Readers, 2015

Cleo desperately wants a necklace. Her parents say special presents are only for birthdays but Cleo doesn't want to wait. In the second story, it's her mum's birthday and Cleo doesn't know what to give her - until she has the best idea of all.

Delightful, warm and irresistible, these stories show how a little girl with a big imagination can always find a way to have fun.

Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood have collaborated on a number of much-loved and award-winning picture books, including Amy and Louis and Clancy and Millie and the Very Fine House.
