Auntie Ellie's Beach House - Raewyn Caisley and Lisa Allen


Leyla loves everything about Auntie Ellie's beach house – the boat, the climbing tree, the old rainwater tank, the driftwood on the beach and the family times there together. She thinks she would be lost without it, but then the moon shows her the way…. A delightful story about people and place that deals gently and lyrically with themes of upheaval and change.

Raewyn Caisley is a New Zealand writer with one foot on either side of the Tasman with a number of titles to her credit. Lisa Allen has illustrated a number of successful picture books including Mangrove (Penguin 2007), Anzac Day Parade (Penguin 2010), and three previous books for Duck Creek Press – Emotions in Motion, A Hot Cup of Chocolate and Tilly's Big Problem.
