Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots

Daisy is thrilled when her uncle offers to take her off on a fishing trip. There’s so much awesome stuff to learn! Like how water witches turn fishermen into dog poo, why supermarkets don’t stock picnicky foods like lemonade and chicken wings on the same shelf – and why it’s a really, really bad idea to use wriggly, icky maggots as catapult ammunition! Whatever next? More hilarious antics with the young madam who just can’t keep her nose out of trouble. Get set to go crazy with Daisy!
