Review

Beth's world isn't so different from anyone else's. But there is one thing that makes it stand out - she navigates the joys and trials of her life by drawing them and sharing them with us.

As we follow Beth through the tedium of the first day of term, the trauma of the family barbecue and the challenges of obnoxious classmates, she offers detailed advice on such diverse topics as caring for reptiles, identifying the different types of head teacher, and knowing what your choice of school bag says about you.

Some readers might be a bit distracted by the rather wandering narrative but there is plenty of fun and anarchic humour in this comic/storybook crossover.
