On a scale of 0 to 10, how likely is someone to SAY or DO something that would be less sensible than (for example) .

Daughter laughed out loud throughout the book but also asked some pretty insightful questions after a bit of thought - some relevant issues about friendships/family came up quite regularly but in such a subtle and realistic way that she did not realise she was learning about relationships. This story immediately reminded me of the Wimpy Kid books with the diary format, humorous writing style and small illustrations throughout the book. I was desperate for something to tempt my 9 year girl away from Wimpy Kid / Tom Gates etc (which she loves) and this has 100% hit the spot.Her friends (and her choice of friends) are nicely created and drive through a refreshing story in a traditional device (diary). From dealing with a nit infestation, annual family trips and a brother with an obsession for his hair to grandparents taking part in TV shows and so much more, Drew simply learns to deal with life one catastrophe at a time. First up is the annual Drew trip to France… and while there might not be camels, there are BATS and Llamas – and my brother Troy who is so obsessed with his hairstyle, he won’t even go swimming… that’s a whole lot of ratings. Sometimes it's hard to believe this is a regular week in my household, but I'll let you be the judge .

Aleksei Bitskoff's illustrations are a great complement to the text and I did enjoy the humour in the text, which has some laugh out loud moments.Gorgeously expressive illustrations by Aleksei Bitskoff and some seriously surreal escapades make this a fabulously fun read about being true to yourself, ideal for readers aged 9+. I bought this book for my ten year old daughter after it was recommended by Deborah James on her Instagram. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I love the fact it is still the illustrated diary format that kids love but with a strong, kind, funny girl as the lead.
