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!

    WOW Cathy, I loved this book. Before I borrowed it from my school library, I labelled this book childish, but actually, it wasn't. I just couldn't put it down. I think you are an amazing author Cathy, and I hope to see more new books in the near and distant future. I can't wait to read the rest in the Daizy Star series! Thank you Cathy,

    BIG fan of Cathy Cassidy!

    Sounds great!

  • Faye, age 9

    I read all of the book today! It was awesome-- it's about secrets, lies, complications, doing the right thing, courage, and so much more... I am looking forward to reading Daizy Star and the Pink Guitar! I will have to earn some money, though, to buy it, because I have used all my money on Ginger-snaps, Angel Cake, Letters to Cathy and Shine On, Daizy Star!!

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,
