The Adventures of Buttercup and Marigold by Mercedes Heymer


This beautifully written and illustrated children’s picture book is fun to read aloud to preschool aged children.

Buttercup and Marigold are Kombi Vans and are also best friends.

Rhyming verse and bright illustrations come together to bring their adventures to life.

Set in Queensland, the characters are cute and quirky as Kombi Vans so often are.

This charming story brings to life Mercedes’ concept of how friends are always willing to help.

Author Mercedes Heymer lives in Gladstone, and enjoys travelling in Queensland with her family by boat or by campervan, meeting new friends along the way.

The Adventures of Buttercup and Marigold is available for purchase from Gladstone City Library or for loan from any Gladstone Regional Library.
