Lilac Peabody and Honeysuckle Hope(2005)
(The fourth book in the Lilac Peabody series)
A novel by Annie Dalton
Lilac Peabody is a small and shimmery little alien being who flits around helping children and tackles any challenge presented. Sometimes she's an intergalactic party-planner, at others a cosmic beachcomber. But always a friend to any child that needs her. Lilac Peabody empowers children to solve their own problems and then disappears once they have achieved their aims.This is the fourth of four short novels which all follow the same group of children within a school environment. Each novel centres on one of the children but it is Lilac's continuing presence that is the all-important link between the four children. It is to Lilac, that the children reveal their true vulnerable selves.Honey Hope is a bully. But what lies behind her unappealing behaviour? Lilac attaches herself to Honeysuckle to find out and, as with the other children, Honey is all the better for it. This story ends with a party, and for the first time all four children discover their common friendship with Lilac Peabody... but by this time, Lilac has moved on!
