A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011

A hilarious and action-packed mini-adventure perfectly pitched for young readers. Daisy knows she’s going to love going on a fishing trip with her uncle even if she knows absolutely nothing about fishing! Daisy’s uncle makes sure she has her own rod, her own catapult and her own bait – maggots. The combination is a recipe for disaster. How the fishing trip goes and how the maggots end up in some unexpected places is a wonderfully entertaining adventure.

Synopsis

Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots by Kes Gray

Daisy is incredibly excited when her uncle offers to take her on a fishing trip. There's so much new stuff to learn! Like how water witches turn fishermen into dog poos, why supermarkets don't stock picknicky things like lemonade and chicken wings on the same shelf, and why it's a really, really bad idea to use wriggly tiggly maggots as catapult amunition...

Reviews

Daisy, with her perfectly round face, determined, beady eyes and severe Joan of Arc coif, is a veritable icon of juvenile intransigence. Publishers Weekly
