Girl Wonder and the Terrific Twins

Funny, feisty and addictive. Malorie tells a family story full of sparky girl-power. Meet a real-life superhero sister! Maxine is Girl Wonder, and her twin brothers Anthony and Edward are the Terrific Twins. There’s no problem this trio won’t tackle. But can they do it without upsetting Mum? Witty stories with a livewire heroine to fall in love with, set in a family where big fun is never far away. As charming as Enid Blyton, with more jolly chuckles than a troupe of clowns on a seaside holiday.

  • Nine funny short stories about Maxine and her family
  • By the former Children’s Laureate, Malorie Blackman
  • Perfect for building confidence in emergent readers
  • Full of heartwarming insights into modern family life
