Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots

Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots

Summary

Go crazy for the one and only Daisy! Cheeky, extremely readable and funny young fiction from the bestselling author behind the hilarious OI FROG series.

Here comes trouble!


Daisy's uncle is taking her on a FISHING TRIP! And she is so excited.

There is so much to learn about fishing, it isn't just about rods and bait and waiting. Daisy also needs to know about:

How water witches turn fishermen into dog poos
Why supermarkets don't stock picknicky things like lemonade and chicken wings on the same shelf
And why maggots are one of the best things about fishing!

But the trouble with maggots is
they don't make very good catapult ammunition...

Reviews

  • Daisy, with her perfectly round face, determined, beady eyes and severe Joan of Arc coif, is a veritable icon of juvenile intransigence
