Synopsis

Turning to Jelly by Candy Guard

Jelly (who is wobbly only when she runs and when Roger Lovely is in the vicinity) and her dorky best friends Ruby and Myf are going to secondary school. They know it's time to be cool and stop playing with dolls in their secret club - the trouble is, none of them is cool at all. Jelly's mum and stepdad are like chalk (a bit screechy) and cheese (a bit smelly) and her brother accuses her of showing off even when she's not doing anything at all. They're not helping the cool situation either, until Jelly's mum suggests a birthday party ...

About the Author

Candy Guard established her reputation for comic observation with a highly successful strip cartoon in the Observer magazine and created Pond Life, an animated sitcom for Channel 4 that won numerous awards and both critical and popular acclaim. She now combines a career as a writer, animator and illustrator, and also teaches scriptwriting to film and animation students. Candy lives in Catford in South east London with her husband and their very overweight cat, Baddy. She also has three stepdaughters who help to remind her about being twelve. TURNING TO JELLY was her first book for children and she has just finished the follow up; Jelly Has a wobble.
