Two fantastic stories about Daisy – a little girl who isn’t always as good as gold….In Really, really Daisy tells her new babysitter that she always has ice-cream and chips for tea; she tells her that she never goes to bed before midnight. But Angela’s no fool and it turns out she can tell a fib or two, too! Daisy makes some good points in You Do! When she catches her mother picking her nose and slurping her soup. Big, bold Nick Sharratt illustrations capture the loveable Daisy beautifully.


Double Trouble by Kes Gray

Presents two stories - "Really, Really" and "You Do!". This work also includes eight pages of interesting activities. So, match the naughty things that both Mum and Daisy do, plus counting, dot-to-dot and spot the difference fun with Daisy.
