Ella Okstad for OUP

Another brilliant book Ella Okstad has been working on recently is this little corker from Oxford University Press: 'Nelly and the Quest for Captain Peabody!'
One girl. One turtle. One epic voyage! If you like Pippi Longstocking, you'll love Nelly Peabody. 
When Nelly says she's going to do a thing, she does it, whatever it is. 
Learn to juggle china cups? Of course! 
Live on lemons for a month? Why not? 
Set out in a boat with knitted sails to find her long-lost father, with only her turtle Columbus for company? Absolutely! 
And she won't let anything get in her way.
