Wendy seems to be a magnet for trouble! Back for a third set of adventures she is now riding a bike – rather dangerously – which is just one of the ways in which she gets full up of wrong! She also has to struggle with a diary which won’t stay shut and try to remember all the school rules. Despite her many slip-ups, Wendy Quill remains her charm.
It is very tricky to get things right ALL of the time. Sometimes, I get things a little bit wrong. But it's not actually always my entire fault. Like when my too-fast-bike whizzed round a corner and I slightly-squished a lady, or when the ghost in my sister's room accidentally pushed her open diary into my hands ...My name is Wendy Quill and this is the story of my slightly awful accidents*. *don't worry though - it's all OK in the end!
