LoveReading View on Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots

A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011

A hilarious and action-packed mini-adventure perfectly pitched for young readers. Daisy knows she’s going to love going on a fishing trip with her uncle even if she knows absolutely nothing about fishing! Daisy’s uncle makes sure she has her own rod, her own catapult and her own bait – maggots. The combination is a recipe for disaster. How the fishing trip goes and how the maggots end up in some unexpected places is a wonderfully entertaining adventure.

Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots Press Reviews

Daisy, with her perfectly round face, determined, beady eyes and severe Joan of Arc coif, is a veritable icon of juvenile intransigence. Publishers Weekly
