About the Book

Villa Verde is a beautiful place in the hills where many different animals live. There’s Laila the ladybug, Daddy the dolphin, Salma the swan, and several others. In this playful collection of ten rhyming short stories, meet them all and learn important lessons. Essie the elephant has always hated her nose, but due to an unexpected rescue mission, she learns to love everything about herself. When a game of hide-and-seek goes wrong, the animals team up to find Baichan the bunny, proving there is strength in numbers. With the help of Sahar the squirrel, a very nasty squirrel learns the importance of being nice. Filled with stories of love, forgiveness, and self-worth, The Magic at Villa Verde entertains and teaches lessons that even adults need to remember!
