Daisy and the Trouble with Coconuts

So what exactly, you may wonder, is the trouble with coconuts? Well – they’re the worst type of nuts in the whole world! If you ask Daisy, coconuts shouldn’t be allowed at the funfair. If you double ask her, they shouldn’t even be allowed to grow. Coconuts are too big. Coconuts are too hairy. Plus, if you try to win one, YOU get into trouble! But really, the trouble with coconuts is that they’re too daft to run away when crazy Daisy is around! Laugh out loud with Daisy as she heads to the funfair for a nutty dose of mischief.

    It was really funny! I love the part where they make a protest on the big wheel and superglued themselves on the seat in the big wheel. I also liked the part where Daisy’s grandfather called her and asked if she had ever eaten a toffee apple. She said yes, though she didn’t, and I found that part of the book especially funny because she said she had eaten a toffee and and an apple, though not together. READ IT ITS GOOD!
