Dolphin adores her mother: she's got wonderful clothes, bright hair and vivid tattoos all over her body. She definitely lives a colourful life. Dolphin's older sister, Star, also loves her but is beginning to wonder if staying with a mum whose temper can be as flashy as her body-art is the best thing for the girls.
222 p. ; 20 cm.
Dolphin and star live in their own little world with their eccentric and glamorous mother Marigold. But life is not all magic and fairies as the children's lives go from happy to chaotic in the blink of an eye. A fantastic story with plenty of tears.
