Synopsis

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...

Reviews

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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
