Synopsis

Trixie Tempest and the Amazing Talking Dog by Ros Asquith

Trixie is a feisty, free-thinking ten and three quarters year old who knows all there is to know about being a tweenager! From the creator of the Letty Chubb the Teenage Worrier, a hugely successful series whose sales top half a million. Trixie Tempest is ten and three-quarters and goes to St Aubergine's Primary School where she's in Year 6. She's a tiny, mouthy, mischeivous, free thinker who never seems to hear the word 'NO'! In other words, a typical tweenager. She's passionate about horses, vegetarianism, football and music. She also wants to build a better world. Her best friends Dina Dare-DeVille and Chloe Caution are always keen to offer advice, as befitting their names.Trixie herself is determined to put the Adult World straight on a number of key points including school being the worst place for Tweenagers to spend their most creative years in. In Short, Trixie is feisty, funny and definitely one for all Tweenagers of between 9 and 11.

Reviews

With groovy illustrations and diagrams, this book is a laugh a minute. We love Trixie the tweenager to death! Blush!
