  • The third book in the Darcy Burdock series from the children’s author named one of the top ten literary talent by The Times, Sorry About Me features the 10-year-old encountering much drama when mice invade her house and her best friend is pulled out of school. Prose is broken up with charming illustrations and notebook extracts

  • The Darcy Burdock series is one of my absolute favourites for younger readers. It's clever, funny and so very charming. I laughed my way through Sorry About Me, revelling in Darcy's kookiness and her ability to see the world the way she does. Surely she's now a literary icon for the 9+ age range?! Darcy is a character to love, as is her whole crazy family. The Burdocks are just so enjoyable to read about, whether they're catching mice or having a shouty rant at a horrid pet shop owner. Whatever they do, they always do it with style, and that's what makes them memorable. Sorry About Me is another genius addition to the Darcy Burdock series and I can't wait for more. I say that at the end of every book, but it's true: they're *that* good!
