Surely no one else would have to endure the terrible school lunches prepared by their grandfather as Summer does – possum and chicken scraps? But Summer is a girl with imagination and spirit and tells this story of life amongst an appealing set of crazies with laugh-out-loud candour. It is a story set against the very recognisable backdrop of the Wairarapa. This is the first book from this writer and I think would make a great read aloud - for girls AND boys.
I enjoyed this so much (one of those read-at-a-sitting books to be ‘consumed’ the moment it comes out of its packaging ) that I am already waiting anxiously for her next title to appear.
Year 5 up/ Age 9 up
