A new historical novel from Anna Ciddor, in the same beautiful, classic storytelling tradition as The Family With Two Front Doors.
'We're going to look everywhere,' said Anna.
And they did.
For Anna, the quest to find the most beautiful doll she has ever seen is the most important thing in the world. But it's only one of the adventures to be had growing up in 1960s Australia.
Was it really such a short time ago that there were no computers, no mobile phones… no seatbelts? That milk was delivered to your front door every morning, and animals lived in tiny concrete cages at the zoo?
Anna and her family celebrate birthdays and Passover, navigate friendships, illness, surprises and mishaps - all the lessons that come with growing up.
And through it all, Anna never loses sight of her dream: to find an antique doll to love and treasure.
Based on the author's real childhood, this is a warm, funny and fascinating family story from the author of The Family with Two Front Doors.
Anna Ciddor has made her name as a versatile writer and illustrator of fiction, travel and historical books for primary school children. Her Viking Magic fantasy series has earned her fans throughout the world. Her previous novel, The Family With Two Front Doors was a CBCA Notable book in 2017. 52 Mondays is a fictionalised account of Anna's own childhood.
