Daizy Star and the Pink Guitar
Book two in the Daizy Star series
Daisy's Dad is the master of mad ideas but his latest scheme has to be the maddest of all. He wants to uproot the whole family, move to Africa and milk goats.
While Daizy understands his motives and is happy to raise awareness and money for a village in Malawi, she cannot bear the thought of leaving her home, friends and custard doughnuts.
With the help of her fabulous, new, pink guitar Daizy is certain she can save the family from Dad's crazy plans and maybe find her star quality along the way.
A simple, yet entertaining, tale with a lively cast of characters which successfully combines humour with serious topical issues.
