Synopsis

Daisy and the Trouble with Christmas by Kes Gray

Christmas: a time of peace, when all is calm? Not if you're Daisy, who has been extremely excited about Christmas since September. And when Daisy is excited, trouble will surely follow! Daisy loves the carols, the sparkly lights, the crackers, the snowmen and especially the chance to be in the school Christmas play. But, as ever with Daisy, things don't go quite according to plan and when the Baby Jesus dolly's head wobbles and falls off, total Christmas chaos ensues.

Reviews

A high octane, very funny story about the run-up to Christmas and the excitement of being in the school's seasonal production Carousel If an ability to get a reader hooting out loud is the sign of a successful book, then this is it Sunday Business Post (Eire)
