Darcy Burdock: Sorry About Me

Written by Laura Dockrill

Darcy Burdock: Sorry About Me Synopsis

Ten-year-old Darcy sees the extraordinary in the everyday and the wonder in the world around her. This third book sees Darcy encounter extra-large-amounts of drama - mice have invaded her house, which means the family must get a cat. Cue a mega-meltdown in a pet shop and then the arrival of Pork, an angry dumpling of a cat who terrifies Lamb-Beth. And while chaos rules at home, Will's long-lost dad has turned-up and taken him out of school. Who will Darcy be friends with now? Must she hang-out with school secretary Mavis EVERY DAY FOR ALL ETERNITY? Joyous drawings, colourful characters and a high-energy voice - the Darcy Burdock books are packed with personality from start to finish.

Darcy Burdock: Sorry About Me Press Reviews

The new Tracy Beaker * Observer * Britain finally has an answer to Jeff Kinney and his Wimpy Kid * Bookzone * I'd like to prescribe a healthy spoonful of Laura Dockrill * Guardian * The third book in the Darcy Burdock series from the children's author named one of the top ten literary talent by The Times, Sorry About Me features the 10-year-old encountering much drama when mice invade her house and her best friend is pulled out of school. Prose is broken up with charming illustrations and notebook extracts * Big Issue * The Darcy Burdock series is one of my absolute favourites for younger readers. It's clever, funny and so very charming. I laughed my way through Sorry About Me, revelling in Darcy's kookiness and her ability to see the world the way she does. Surely she's now a literary icon for the 9+ age range?! Darcy is a character to love, as is her whole crazy family. The Burdocks are just so enjoyable to read about, whether they're catching mice or having a shouty rant at a horrid pet shop owner. Whatever they do, they always do it with style, and that's what makes them memorable. Sorry About Me is another genius addition to the Darcy Burdock series and I can't wait for more. I say that at the end of every book, but it's true: they're *that* good! * Wondrous Reads *
