Have you ever read your big sister’s diary by accident or slightly squashed someone when riding your bike while dreaming of sugar mice? If so, you will understand how Wendy Quill feels when she declares she is ‘full up of wrong’.
A book in three acts, each act is a valuable lesson in life for Wendy Quill. She learns how you feel inside when doing a ‘terrible thing’, how sometimes something wrong can turn out alright in the end and that owning up is best even though it’s quite hard to do.
We see the confusing world of grown ups from Wendy Quill’s perspective as she retells this series of unfortunate incidents. A list of quite badly made rules by grown ups is included such as how can you make sure you are always polite but never talk to strangers?
The book has a scrap book feel making it ideal for sharing with a friend. There are lots of interesting facts and ‘Extra bits that are a total surprise’ at the back such as secret rules for the Giggle Wheeze Gang and how to make a super sticky flapjack. This is the latest in the Wendy Quill series written by Wendy Meddour. Mina May, her talented 12-year-old daughter, provides the excellent illustrations.
