Review

Betsey Biggalow is here! She may be small but she's full of bright and shiny ideas about new trainers, winning marbles, and even helping the world. Join Betsey in four short, sun-filled adventures as she learns you don't have to be big to make a big difference.

This is one of a series of short story collections about the irrepressible Betsey Biggalow, set in the Carribean. We get to know Betsey's friends and family, and see their reactions to Betsey's adventures. Quietly and simply presenting the day-to-day problems that occur in family life - as well as their solutions - these are uncomplicated, gently instructional tales, perfect for young readers who are beginning to gain confidence in reading independently. The stories are accompanied by fun new illustrations from Jamie Smith.
