Publisher Summary

Flick is just like any other youngster. She loves to chase butterflies and jump in autumn leaves. But life at the end of Holyrood Lane is often violent and unpredictable due to the constant storms that plague her home, causing her to cringe with dread and flee whenever they strike. Visually arresting, emotionally incisive, and ultimately uplifting, this beautifully crafted picture book provides a sensitive glimpse into one aspect of domestic violence and how it can affect young lives.

Who Wrote At the End of Holyrood Lane

author
Dimity Powell

To Read, Write and Inspire sum up Dimity’s main passions in life, along with sailing on the beam, eating ice cream and writing in her diary – although doing all three at once makes her nauseous. She’s a Kids’ Lit nut, living, breathing and reading it for huge chunks of her day. She weaves words into story webs for anthologies, digital narratives, junior novels, reading apps and most gratifyingly, into picture books.

When she’s not wrangling words, she’s reviewing, managing a team of reviewers for Kids’ Book Review or sharing her love of story in front of crowds of very small people. It says so on her website, so it must be true. She loves rain and is never ever afraid of getting wet.

Dimity lives just around the corner from Bat Man on the Gold Coast, Australia although they never hang out. Such is the life of children’s authors and superheroes.
