The Lovereading4Kids comment

Daisy’s problems are legion – and familiar! Life is just so unfair! She is grounded and that means her life is quite impossibly boring. But, should she have been grounded in the first place? Listen to Daisy tell her own story in this fresh, first person narrative.

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?
