Karen King's humble opinion
9/10 Very good. I am pleased with this.
What's it about?
A fun story about having to compromise.
What happens?
Daisy hates wearing dresses, so there's no way she's going to wear a bridesmaid's dress to Auntie Sue's wedding. Yuk! She complains about every dress they show her and says she will only wear a dress if they allow her to design it herself. Mum and Auntie Sue reluctantly agree. What will Daisy come up with?
Is it easy to read?
This is a fun book that a child will want to read again and again.
Anything else?
The bright, colourful fun pictures perfectly compliment the simple, amusing text. You might not want your daughter to read it if you're trying to persuade her to be a bridesmaid, though! Kes Gray has written a series about Daisy and won three major children's literature prizes. Nick Sharrat is a popular illustrator and has won many awards including the Children's Book Award.
Other books by Kes Gray include Billy's Bucket, Eat Your Peas, You Do!.
Who says so?
This review by Karen King.
The publisher reckons...
Auntie Sue is getting married and she's asked Daisy to be her bridesmaid. But Daisy doesn't do dresses and she certainly doesn't do lovely. Daisy wants to wear a baseball outfit, or scuba gear, or even a leopard skin suit, but Mum and Auntie Sue drag her off to the dress shop. Daisy thinks everything is 'Yuk!' until she finally manages to strike a deal and design her own dress . . .
