Daisy: Yuk! by Kes Gray

Here comes trouble! This is a super-dooper picture book featuring the one and only Daisy! Auntie Sue is getting married and she's asked Daisy to be her bridesmaid. But Daisy doesn't do dresses and she certainly doesn't do lovely. Daisy wants to wear a football kit, or scuba gear, or her leopard skin suit, but Mum and Auntie Sue drag her off to the dress shop. Daisy thinks everything is 'Yuk!' until she finally manages to strike a deal and design her own dress...

... brilliantly structured so that it holds the interest when read aloud rather as a good joke must before arriving at its punchline ... Nick Sharratt's bright, simple pictures look almost as though an inspired child had produced them - and that may well be why children respond to them so warmly Observer
