The antics of Daisy in this book for young children cannot fail to fill the unsuspecting adult with some alarm. It is indeed well known that small people get up to mischief when adults are not looking or not around, but why emphasize all the negative possibilities rather than the positives? Jumping off furniture, spreading bright yellow paint around the house, cutting another child's hair, stuffing loo paper down the toilet and cooking apples into the tumble drier are not any of them recommended behaviour and really too many 'antics' for one book. Possibly taken from a real-life situation this story does not quite come off as it fails to provoke laughter and reads as a list of misdeeds which lead us to a very tame ending.
