Daisy and the Trouble with Life

The trouble with life is that it’s so not fair. The trouble with mums is that you can’t swap them. The trouble with being grounded is that it’s just totally boring. As if all that trouble isn’t bad enough, poor Daisy is also about to discover the trouble that happens when you eat dirty sweets off the floor… Daisy’s unique voice explores life and the trouble with everything in this hilarious full-length journal.

    The characters in the book are wonderful. I can relate to Daisy completely.

    I like Dylan as a character, but you didn’t really see him that much in this book.

    I liked when the Money spider took control of the book because he talks like he’s Daisy when he’s not. I like how the author used different fonts for it.

    This book is best for 5 or 6 year olds as it was very easy for me to read and read it in one sitting.

    And I really love the illustrations (but I love Nick Sharratt)!!
