About The Book

Ella and Maddy and their adorable cat learn there’s always room for new friendships in this endearing follow-up to A Year with Marmalade.

Best friends Ella and Maddy are busy building a playhouse, with Marmalade lazing around nearby. Suddenly Toby, the boy from across the street, zooms by with his red cape and ruins everything. So then they decide to build some sandcastles. Swoosh! Toby cartwheels through, his cape destroying the castles. Ella and Maddy don’t want Toby around, but Marmalade seems to be warming up to him. And when Marmalade gets stuck in a tree, guess who comes to the rescue?

Continuing the wonderful theme of friendship that began with A Year with Marmalade with simple, effective text from Alison Reynolds and charming, one-of-a-kind illustrations from Heath McKenzie, this is a beautiful story about accepting others and tolerating those who may be different from us.
