Rita the Rescuer by Hilda Offen
Published by The Penguin Group, 1997
ISBN 0-14-038598-3

Rita Potter is the youngest in her family. Her older brothers and sisters don’t want to play with her because, according to them, she needs to be minded all the time.

But one day Rita proves them wrong when a parcel arrives for her. In the parcel is a rescuer’s outfit. Rita puts it on and is transformed into a most daring heroine helping people in the most incredibly dangerous situations. Other books about this courageous heroine include; Roll Up! Roll Up! It’s Rita, SOS for Rita and Rita in Wonderland.

All are titles in the First Young Puffin series. Lively, easy-to read stories and colour illustrations on every page are characteristic of this extensive range of beginner readers for children.
