The third hilarious accidental diary from Billie Upton Green (don't call her BUG!)
"Ideal for fans of Tom Gates, or Pamela Butchart's books . . . a wonderful new series" - The Week Junior
"Fun, funny, inclusive and warm-hearted, these books are pure, cheery joy" - Sophie Anderson
There's an exciting addition to the Upton Green family (and it's not whatever Mr Paws has left on the living room carpet...).
But getting a new little sister isn't nearly as straightforward as Billie expects. Why are there so many rules? It's been weeks and weeks, and she still hasn't been able to hold the baby up at Show & Tell.
Luckily, the school musical is in full swing, giving Billie the perfect distraction. She just needs to watch out for Painy Janey, who has her eyes on the main part and doesn't care what gets in her way...
This cheery, highly illustrated diary story, more rooted in contemporary reality than Liz Pichon's Tom Gates books, is the first in a series that's sure to find devoted fans.
A sparky, funny new series perfect for fans of Diary of A Wimpy Kid.
Ideal for fans of Tom Gates, or Pamela Butchart's books . . . a wonderful new series.
I really enjoyed reading the adventures of Billie Upton Green (not Bug!!)! Billie is a delightful and relatable character, and her escapades are both funny and heart-warming. I particularly enjoyed the inclusivity in the text, and it's a real joy to see such positive LGBTQ+ representation in children's books. Jen has written a real treat for younger readers, and the artwork is fabulous, too!
Readers will love Billie's adventures, and her funny, doodle-filled way of sharing them, as much as they love the Dork Diaries or Wimpy Kid stories, and it's great too to see such a warm celebration of diverse family life.

Billie Upton Green aka B.U.G. (although don't ever call her BUG!) has started her own diary. Billie's teacher wants her to use her new jotter to practice her spellings but that's the WORST IDEA EVER. Instead, Billie has begun to jot down and doodle all her observations at school. And there's a new girl in her class who is very suspicious...
