Product description

Permanent Rose. A clear, warm colour that glows with its own lively brightness, no matter how thinly spread. A colour that does not fade. There had been a Permanent Rose-coloured sky on the morning that Rose was born.

Permanent Rose is the baby of the family. When she was born she was so frail everyone thought she would die, but Rose fought back – and now, even though she is the smallest in the family, defiant Rose has the biggest, strongest will of all. But now Rose’s special friend Tom has flown back to America. Rose can’t understand why he’s not been in touch. A long, hot summer lies ahead… but without Tom, each day feels a million years long. Her family seem to have given up on him. But Permanent Rose wants Tom back, and she knows that where there’s a will, there’s a way… Brave, wild, comical, plucky and proud, Rose is a heroine to blow you away. The third unforgettable book in the Casson family saga.

Permanent Rose is the antidote to everything that’s bad in children’s books” The Sunday Telegraph

“From the opening scene … McKay’s third story about the vibrant Casson family is entrancing.” The Guardian

    I love these books!!!!!!! I have met Hilary Mckay and she is super nice. Rose was defiantly my favourite character when I read these- I think she is hilarious. These books are slow starting but stick with them and you won’t regret it.

    This book is beautifully written, and the cover is equally beautiful. This is a really fun book to read – I recommend it to girls aged 10-14.
