This is the third book in the Amanda Commander series that we have brought to you this year, following on from Book 1 in March, and Book 2 in June.

In this instalment, the three friends of the Dolphin Squad, Amanda, Mai and Lucia are all excited for the school disco. It is the first time that they have been old enough to attend, and they can’t wait.

Colour is so important in their lives, and when Amanda spots a beautiful, long sleeved, canary yellow dress with pockets, she knows that it is perfect.

But when word spreads around school that popular girl Eve is wearing a long sleeved yellow dress, Amanda and her friends set out on a mission to get Eve to change her mind.

Can the girls come up with the perfect plan?

This is a wonderful series that highlights friendship, family, creativity, inclusiveness, kindness and forgiveness and is perfect for emerging readers.
