Lucy's Quarrel by Jennifer Northway


Lucy's Quarrel by Jennifer Northway

Lucy and her cousin Alice are best friends. But when Alice calls Lucy bossy it is the start of a big quarrel that threatens to spoil Lucy's birthday. Can Lucy and Alice make friends again in time for Lucy's party?


Beautifully illustrating the trials and tribulations of friendship, these are ideal books for reading aloud and addressing quarrels at home or in the setting. Jennifer Northway shares Shirley Hughes

. EYE An ultra-realistic story. Northway captures the emotional reality and the humour perfectly in words and pictures. The playgroup who tested this story voted it 'the favourite by a mile'. It inspired lots of discussion and some heart searching. Carousel
