Eliza Vanda’s Button Box

Eliza Vanda’s Button Box by Emily Rodda (HarperCollins) HB RRP $22.99 ISBN 9781460759608

Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

Milly’s life is about to become a whole lot more interesting, not because she is about to become a big sister for the first time, but because she is about to meet Eliza Vanda.

Eliza Vanda (friends call her EV) is a dressmaker who comes to stay at one of the four cabins that Milly’s father owns in Tidgy Bay. Milly is intrigued by EV from the moment they meet, and rightly so, there is much more to her than meets the eye. The mysterious EV soon introduces Milly to a fascinating new world…and it all begins with her magical button box!

The book’s embossed hardcover and pretty cover design are gorgeous, and the colour palette of predominately pinks and greens makes it one that will stand out in a collection. The exquisite endpapers complete the impressive visuals and are a personal favourite.

Eliza Vanda’s Button Box is a middle grade fantasy novel written by the award-winning author, Emily Rodda. This charming narrative has a fairy tale vibe and will surely delight fans of magic and mystery. It is highly recommended for readers aged ten years and older.
