Novel for children.

[When Hollie Chips and her mum move to Puriti Road, Hollie is baffled by the way her neighbours all keep to themselves. But Hollie is a remarkable little girl, and it isn┬┐t long before she has charmed her way into their lives. When she discovers that a dastardly businessman is trying to buy up their houses, to bulldoze them and build a dog food factory (which he has told them will be an orphanage!), the neighbours have to band together with Hollie and her mum to outwit him!]

"Hollie Chips is an unusual girl. Not just because she has one blue eye and one brown eye but she just cannot tell a lie no matter how small. So when she finds out that the unscrupulous Barry Bucksud has been lying to her and her neighbours, she plans to get even."--Back cover. Suggested level: primary, intermediate.
