LoveReading View on Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool

Longlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award  In Chicken Clicking this gifted duo created a marvellous cautionary tale for our time. Now they deliver another important lesson for today’s impressionable youth. Appearance is everything to Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool , the most beautiful girl in the whole of the school. It’s her aim to make the world a more beautiful place and no-one she meets escapes her censure, or her instructions on ways to improve their appearance. Until sadly she meets a monster and learns to her cost … well, you can probably guess! This is a brilliant piece of comic verse, wonderfully illustrated by Tony Ross, and should be recited to and by children up and down the country for their delight and edification. Superb! ~ Andrea Reece

Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool Synopsis

The most beautiful girl in the whole of the school is Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool - but Lucinda Belinda felt it was her duty to guide all her friends in the subject of beauty. Lucinda becomes the scourge of family and friends, criticising big bottoms and moustaches (especially her grandma's) until everyone avoids her. So when Lucinda meets a monster in the forest, she makes it her mission to make-over this scary creature. Unfortunately changing its outside does not change what's inside - as Lucinda Belinda discovers!
