Millvy’s Tail Goes To Koro Island

I really do not like the water, but I must go after my tail!

Millvy follows an iguana across the Pacific Ocean to retrieve his tail. Millvy and his new friends, the Koro red–shining parrot, the foal and a baby hawk called Squirt, face adventures and rescues as they race around Koro Island following the tail and its pesky thieves!

Mum is calling me home so I must go…

Will my tail be okay? When will I see it again?

Start this series with Milly’s Missing Tail where Millvy, the silver Maine Coon cat, goes in pursuit of his stolen tail. In this book, Millvy follows his tail to Koro Island in Fiji. Book 3 is in development and will be based in New Zealand. Books 4 – 6 will see Millvy globetrotting further afield. P.S. Millvy will get his tail back in the final book!

Millvy also appears in two delightful ABC books, ABC with Millvy in English and ABC with Millvy in Fijian, and a counting book, 123 with Millvy


5.0 out of 5 stars. “Really liked all the extra info about Fiji and its animals.”

“Great pictures as always and nice story. Can’t wait to see where he goes next.”

5.0 out of 5 stars. “Very cute children’s story! I had a special interest in this book…there is a book 1 & a book 2…we have a home where the 2nd book takes place & the characters in the book – well, we know so it makes the story even more interesting! I think all children would like this story though, regardless if they know the actual place or not. We have the parrots on our lot, & personally got to know Squirt, the Fiji Goshawk…what a bird! Plus, you get introduced to a village & some of the recent history of Koro – namely, Cyclone Winston & its destruction! Another plus to these books is that the children can learn a few simple Fijian words which are used in the books – like hello, goodbye, grass mats, etc. I give them an A+!”
