Daisy's Big Dig

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Daisy lives on Magnolia Street with her mum, dad and dog. She talks to all of her neighbours: Mr Hofmeister with the beautiful garden; the house full of messy students; Mrs Lemming and her huge family; studious Tarquin Fanshawe; lonely Mrs Benjamin; and the eccentric Professor Flowerdew. However, her neighbours never talk to each other. When Mr Hofmeister hurts his back and cannot take care of his garden Daisy comes up with a plan that won’t just help him but will also bring all the neighbours together.


This heart-warming story is beautifully illustrated: Angie Morgan combines drawing and collage to great effect. Its lively cast of characters and feel-good ending ensure that young readers will return to this story it time and time again.
