Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood are an awesome author/illustrator team who have already collaborated on many children's books including Amy & Louis and Clancy & Millie and the Very Fine House. 

The Cleo Stories is not quite a picture book and not quite a chapter book - perfect for budding readers who want something longer than a picture book but not as long as a chapter book.  It features two stories about Cleopatra Miranda McCann - an imaginative and resourceful little girl who finds creative solutions to her problems.
