Daizy Star and the Pink Guitar

Meet the one and only DAIZY STAR!

Daizy is ready to dazzle everyone with her brand-new pink guitar – maybe she’ll even find her star quality!

But the Dad comes up with another crazy idea, which means swapping happy family life for milking African goats. Eeeek! Daizy needs a clever plan. . .

She’s got to win the Battle of the Bands, or she can say goodbye to all her friends, sleepovers and – worst of all – custard doughnuts. . .

  • Melissa, age 11

    I read the extract and I loved it. Daisy is a funky unique kid who I can relate to in so many ways. I loved the first one so Much I almost got late for school! I'm sure this ones as twice as awesome.

  • Holli, age 12

    I loved this book! I is so funny. I have a boy at my school called Ethan, and he is just as annoying as Ethan Miller in this story!

  • Courtney, age 11

  • Ella, age 12

    I loved this book! Even though it's for younger kids I read it and it was great! Never stop writing Cathy! Xoxoxo

  • Sophie, age 11

    I LOVED and treasured this book from the first page! I can't believe we have such a talented writer amongst them all!
    gooo Cathy!!!!

  • Indigo, age 13

    I just read Daizy Star no 2 and I just loved it! It's really well written. I'd have thought Cathy could only write from teen's point of view, but I was sooo wrong. Though you can totally tell it's from an eleven year old's point of view, it's funny and lively and it shows how you can feel when you're under pressure and you fail what you put all your hopes up. Pixie (Daizy's little sister)is mega-ultra-super cute and Becca is fantastic. Shine on, Daizy Star!

  • Jamie, age 10

    just got this book today and my friend got the first one we can not wait to read them

  • Fifee, age 9

    I've read the first one of Daizy Star and it was amazing! Really, I haven't read this book yet but I know I'm going to get it. If my mum doesn't get it for me I'll really cry

  • Imogen, age 11

    It's the best! A great way to explain disaster and destruction...yet hope still shines above the clouds.

  • Bella, age 10

    I read the first book it was really good and so is this one. Poor Daisy it's so much happening to her can't handle it . . . read it!!!

  • Lois, age 11

    Well... what can I say?
    AMAZING! It had me engrossed from the minute I picked it up, to the minute I put it down! I really enjoyed it.

    The story line was great. I really loved the family emotion, and the goat! I think that you really showed people what Charity Work does for people living in the poor parts of the world.

    The characters in this story were funny. My fave was, and has to be, the Guitar Guru! He was so funny, as all of them, and really pushed Daizy to express her inner Guitar-self. If you look below, you will see my ratings for this books:

    Story Line: 10/10
    Illustrations: 10/10
    Characters: 9/10
    Hooked-ability: 8/10
    Reccommend-ability: 10/10
    Overall: 10/10

    This book is DEFFINATLY worth a read!
