Synopsis

Daisy And The Trouble With Life by Kes Gray

In Daisy's guide to life, nothing is quite black and white. Daisy's got ever so much time to think about what she's done. Really, it wasn't her fault. If her pocket money hadn't run out, who knew that it had invisible red germs that are so totally teensy and that Auntie Sue says give you tummy trouble?

Reviews

Daisy, with her perfectly round face, determined, beady eyes and sever Joan of Arc coif, is a veritable icon of juvenile intransigence * Publishers Weekly * Full of humour, this is great for newly confident readers * The Children's Bookseller * This is a great book to encourage new readers and to bring on those who enjoyed the previous Daisy books * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * I would recommend this book * Junior Education * Highly recommended * The School Librarian *
