The Lovereading4Kids comment

Zinging with good humour, how Hattie enjoys being bad, then sees the advantages to being good before reverting to a bit more bad with has direct child appeal and will have readers laughing at and with this likeable heroine –especially when she shouts ‘knickers’. The jokes are good and they also provide food for thought about all kinds of behaviour and responses to it.

Synopsis

Hattie the Bad by Jane Devlin, Joe Berger

Hattie was bad. Really bad. When I say bad, I don't just mean forget-to-tidy-her-room, reading-comics-after-bedtime kind of bad. No, she was so bad, no-one was allowed to play with her. But it's no fun being bad on your own, is it? So, she becomes Hattie the Good. Good Hattie tidies her room and goes to bed early. But nobody likes a goody-two shoes now, do they? In the most hilarious moment in a picture book ever, Hattie rebels in spectacular fashion and reverts to being bad ...for good!
