A collection of ten humorous cautionary stories about a variety of children with bad habits or behaviour.
Roll up, roll up! Meet five Beastly Boys and five Gruesome Girls!
Like Sofia Sofa - a TV superfan so stuck to the sofa that she's turning into one! Or Dribbling Drew - a boy whose drool gets him into terrible trouble on a school trip! And not forgetting Blubbering Bertha - a bawling big sister with a horrid habit of telling tales!
NOTE : Some of the children get into dangerous or criminal situations, but the tone throughout is so over the top, it's unlikely that young readers will find it upsetting.
NOTE : Suggested by the British Dyslexia Association:
"As any expert will tell you, descriptive writing often isn't right for dyslexic and reluctant readers - who prefer fun, wit and light-heartedness and, most of all, a great plot, all of which this book has."
