Shine on Daizy Star

A brand new series for Cathy Cassidy – perfect for little sisters or as a mini read for existing fans!

Meet the one and only Daizy Star!

She's quirky and cool and loving life in Year Six with her best friends Willow and Beth. But when Dad hatches a mad plan that will turn life upside-down, Daizy is too horrified to tell anyone at all . . . and pretty soon she finds herself tangled up in a knot of secrets and lies. Will Daizy realize that even when she's sinking, her friends and family are there to help her swim?

Complete with gorgeous illustrations by Cathy herself!

  • Aislinn , age 12

    I love this book! It's so refreshing and upbeat- as are all of Cathy's books. I know this sounds strange but all of Cathy's books seem like the kind you read sipping hot coco outside on your favourite tree... that's how I do it anyway. Daisy is perfect for all ages. If you're reading this thinking- should I get it? GET IT! You WONT be disappointed!!!

    I LOVE daizy star

  • Mev, age 12

    Even though I'm older(seeing as I'm turning 13 this year on the 9th of Apiril)and an experienced reader. I'm still gonna get this book and read it anyway. I also might let my 11 year old sister read it,she is a bit too young to read CC older books and also not a very good reader. Bye guys. Have A Very Happy Easter.

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,
