    I am really looking forward to reading this book! I have read all of Cathy's books so far, and I can't wait to borrow Daizy star from the library! :)

    I just read it yesterday and i loved it. The illustrations made it more life like and the actual book was really interesting.
    It's about a girl whos 10 3/4 and in yr 6. Her friends are going crazy after the most annying boy in the school, her used to be perfect student sister had turned emo and her dad has come up with the worst idea in the world! How could anything be worse, well for Daizy Star it could!
    It's the day of the big swim. Daizy would love to help with the charity event but there's just one problem: the swimming part......
    To find out more , youl'll have to read the book!!!

    Daizy Star was a fabulous book that told the things going on through Daizy's life kind of like what ten year olds go through. Even ages older. It was captivating story and it showed how you can always get through things with wishes, family and friends and a bit of magic!
    I rate it ten/ten.

  • Kirsty, age 13

    I found this book really interesting to read and i couldn't put it down it was so exciting. I hope you publish another book following on from Daizy Star because it would be so interesting to see what happens next.

Hello planet!

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,
