She may not look like me at all, but if there is one thing miss Olivia has inherited from her mama it’s my love of books. Just like her twin brother she absolutely loves to read and if I let you you’d even find her walking to school while reading a book. When I stumbled upon this new Petra James title Olivia immediately put her hand up to read and review it and she has given it the big thumbs up:
Izzy Winkle is the most grateful girl in the world. At least, she was until a red polka-dotted hot air balloon floated past her window, and out came a competition flyer that fluttered right through her window. That is when the trouble really began. Izzy decides to enter the ‘Most Ungrateful Girl in the World’ competition, surely she must be the best at something? She becomes even more determined to win when the Department of Manners asks her to go undercover to spoil the competition. Now, everywhere girls are being ungrateful as they dream of being crowned The Most Ungrateful Girl in the World (RRP $16.99) and take out the big prize.
But how can Izzy Winkle, the most grateful girl in the world, compete against Fib Girl who holds the record for the tallest story ever told? (At least, she says she does) How can she win against Bad Word Girl, whose favourite word is ‘Bumfuzzle‘? How can Izzy beat Nit Girl, who hasn’t washed her hair for six months? The only thing Izzy is sure of is that there is going to be a lot of trouble, bad manners and fun!
I thought that ‘The Most Ungrateful Girl in the World’ is a great book, it was very funny. I think the ages 8+ will really like this book, or anyone with magnificent manners!
