The Accidental Diary of B.U.G.: Book 3 Synopsis

The third hilarious accidental diary from Billie Upton Green (don't call her BUG!) There's an exciting but complicated addition to the Upton Green family (and it's not whatever Mr Paws has left on the living room carpet...). Luckily, the school musical is in full swing, giving Billie the perfect distraction. She just needs to watch out for Painy Janey, who has her eyes on the main part and doesn't care what gets in her way...

The Accidental Diary of B.U.G.: Book 3 Press Reviews

For readers of seven-plus, Jen Carney's The Accidental Diary of BUG (Puffin) introduces sparky eponymous heroine Billie Upton Green . . . This cheery, highly illustrated diary story, more rooted in contemporary reality than Liz Pichon's Tom Gates books, is the first in a series that's sure to find devoted fans. * The Guardian * I really enjoyed reading the adventures of Billie Upton Green (not Bug!!)! Billie is a delightful and relatable character, and her escapades are both funny and heart-warming. I particularly enjoyed the inclusivity in the text, and it's a real joy to see such positive LGBTQ+ representation in children's books. Jen has written a real treat for younger readers, and the artwork is fabulous, too! * L. D. Lapinski, The Strangeworlds Travel Agency * Readers will love Billie's adventures, and her funny, doodle-filled way of sharing them, as much as they love the Dork Diaries or Wimpy Kid stories, and it's great too to see such a warm celebration of diverse family life. * Andrea, LoveReading4Kids *
