Something Special 40th Anniversary Edition

Rodda, Emily

The award-winning classic by internationally renowned author Emily Rodda celebrates forty years.

In the spare room, the second-hand clothes hang in rows, stirring in the sunlight. Sam walks through the rows, brushing velvety sleeves, touching lace, sensing memories and magic.

The clothes all have neat price tags. They’re ready to be sold at the school fete on Saturday. Sam knows that some of them are Special. Her mother has told her so. But she is soon to find out just how Special they really are.

A children’s fantasy favourite for forty years, Something Special was Emily Rodda’s debut novel and won the prestigious Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year for Younger Readers Award in 1985.
