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?

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 *

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
