Synopsis

Jelly Has a Wobble by Candy Guard

Jelly, Myf and Roobs have an exciting summer ahead. Not only are they going to be bridesmaids, but they're going to see OMG live in concert! They just need to find a not-stupid way to get enough money for the concert tickets first. Then they have to become totally pro street dancers so they can fulfil Jelly's mum's wedding dream. And then there's the small issue of Jelly not embarrassing herself in front of Roger Lovely, which is quite hard with a name like Jelly...

Hilariously honest accounts of an ordinary tween girl's life, for fans of Dork Diaries, Tom Gates and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Reviews

Brought to life by lively illustrations, Jelly's deliciously witty and appealingly honest exploits will delight pre-teens who are struggling to find a heroine they can truly identify with. Lancashire Evening Post

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.
