Fussy Freya by Katherine Quarmby


Fussy Freya by Katherine Quarmby

Freya has an appetite as fine as can be - until one day she declares, Your dhal and rice are just not nice. She spurns baked beans, sausages, and soon she's very thin indeed. Mum, in despair, phones Grandma Clare. We'll sort her, says Grandma, the fussy little beast. So off Freya goes for a fabulous feast - and a lesson she will never forget.


'make(s) you smile at the sheer quirkiness!'
