Synopsis

Five (and a Bit) Days in the Life of Ozzie Kingsford by Val Bird

Ozzie and his family get ready for the visit of Uncle Rusty from London. As Ozzie says: 'Prediction: This forthcoming social event will throw my parents into a state of pre-visitor-tension, and our family will suffer from DISHARMONY.' And it does. Mum goes into a frenzy of getting the house tidy (read u Ozzie has to clean his room!), the lawn mowed and the menu prepared. The Brat, Snoops, Ozzie and Dad all suffer. Add to that a huge storm, the fact it's nearly Christmas and a few little Ozzie-disasters and it's chaos. Another hilarious story from Val Bird with brilliant illustrations from her daughter Rebecca Cundy. 'My son (aged 12) absolutely loved the book - he NEVER reads - but he basically read it whenever he wasn't doing anything outside, normally he would be in front of TV or on his PSP if inside but no! He took it away camping with us and now we have returned to civilisation, I am instructed to get the next one for him to read...' Julia

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
