Young bookworms who are just getting to grips with reading will love these two new releases.
The stories are funny, sweet and charming, with lovely illustrations. The Farm Fiasco sees Clementine Rose so excited because she and her classmates are going to the farm. She is a little worried, though, because cross Aunt Violet is coming along too and things go a little crazy when Aunt Violet and Clementine’s teacher, Miss Bottomley, go missing and Josh is cornered.
Perfect Present tells the story of a wedding at Penberthy House. Amid all the excitement, Uncle Digby falls ill and an invitation goes astray, meaning to everyone’s horror, that Aunt Violet is left in charge.
Clementine Rose and the Farm Fiasco and Perfect Present by Jacqueline Harvey, £5.99, www.randomhouse.co.uk
