February 2014 Book of the Month Horse-mad Coco is the youngest of the sisters in the family. Different from all the others, she is a tomboy at heart and passionate about saving the endangered species of the world. Coco’s main passion is for riding and it is through her love of horses - and the temperamental Caramel in particular - that Coco gets involved with the moody and unpredictable Lawrie Marshall. Soon Coco finds herself in all kinds of trouble while also trying to keep abreast of the complicated lives of her sisters! Will the chocolate box girls lives ever settle down to something like normal? Cathy Cassidy brings an ebullient family vividly to life.

***And all Cathy fans will love The Chocolate Box Secrets. It's a delicious scrapbook of fun, creative ideas from the Chocolate Box Girls.

Synopsis

Coco Caramel by Cathy Cassidy

Coco is the youngest of the Tanberry sisters but she's as headstrong as any of them. Coco is crazy about animals and loves her riding lessons. When Caramel, her favourite pony at the stables, is sold, Coco scopes out the new owner - and she's not happy about what she discovers. With big sister Honey going off at the deep end and Summer only just recovering from her eating disorder, there's no-one at Tanglewood to help Coco out. Can Coco save Caramel alone - or will a new friend help her?

A perfect next step for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, by the bestselling author of Scarlett, Dizzy, Angel Cake and Ginger Snaps.

You can find videos of all the Tanberry sisters on Cathy Cassidy TV!

About the Author

Cathy Cassidy

"I was born in 1962 in Coventry (scarily ancient, I know). I wrote my first picture book for my little brother when I was eight or nine. I loved making comics, too - pages and pages of picture stories, features and competitions. I'd sell my homemade comic to a friend for 5p, then claim it back and sell it again to someone else; they didn't have photocopiers back then!"

Cathy has been writing fabulous stories ever since. Her books have sold over one million copies in the UK alone. She is the bestselling author of Dizzy, Driftwood, Indigo Blue, Scarlett, Sundae Girl, Lucky Star, Gingersnaps and Angel Cake. The Chocolate Box Girls is a sumptuous series starring sassy sisters, super-cool boys and one of Cathy's biggest loves - chocolate.

Cathy Cassidy is Puffin's top-selling author for girls. She was an art teacher, a magazine editor and an agony aunt before becoming a full-time writer. She has worked at Shout magazine and previously at Jackie, the magazine named after Jacqueline Wilson. Cathy tours extensively around the UK - meeting over 10,000 young readers in 2012. She has twice won the prestigious 'Queen of Teen' award. Cathy lives with her husband, two teenage children, two dogs, two cats and a rabbit.
