The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ This new story from Jean Ure, though seemingly simple and straightforward, is typically full of insight into children’s friendships and lives. Like lots of children, Lily longs for a dog but now that she and her mum are living in a fifth floor flat it’s just not possible. Lily can’t accept this, blames her mum (they used to live with her gran until her mum had a falling out with her) and generally behaves in a very stroppy way. A meeting with an old lady and her dog in the park changes things, and Lily’s new friendship helps her cope with her anger, and gives her space to calm down. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

My Dog Daisy by Jean Ure

Lily is absolutely desperate for her very own dog. She's wanted one for as long as she can remember and no other pet will do. But Mum says they can't keep one in their new flat - disaster! So when Lily meets a fellow dog-lover in the park one day she hatches a plan to be a co-owner. Will her new friend Charlotte and Fred the dog be the answer to all her prayers?

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

About the Author

Jean Ure

Jean Ure was born in Surrey, and when growing up, knew that she was going to be a writer but she also wanted to be a ballet dancer.

She wrote her first novel when she was six years old which was about a little girl called Carol. Jean spent her teenage years writing and had her first book published when she was just sixteen – an event that prompted her to leave school the following year to continue writing. However she spent the next several years ‘scrubbing floors, waiting at tables, selling groceries’. Jean also worked as a nurse and at the BBC before enrolling at the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she met her husband. She worked for several years in Paris as a translator for DATO and UNESCO and wrote romantic novels. Jean Ure is a well-known, respected and high-profile author whose numerous other titles, which include Love And Kisses, Star Crazy Me and, most recently, Jelly Baby, have received critical acclaim.

Jean is a vegan and animal lover. She lives with her husband, seven dogs and two cats in a 300 year old house in Croydon.
