Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool

(1 reviews with an average rating of 1 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

School style icon Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool dresses like a princess - perfectly primped from head to toe. Sadly, she thinks everyone else should be, too! No one escapes Lucinda's judgement - from Miss Worthington to Lucinda's cat - until Lucinda meets a hideous monster.  

Lucinda's not afraid, just offended by the Monster's scruffy, dirty appearance. After much preening and painting Lucinda declares the Monster is DIVINE. But although the Monster now looks fair, its heart is still dark…

The tongue-pleasingly melodious text of this cautionary tale works cleverly alongside illustrations showing Lucinda's increasingly outrageous solutions to people's perceived blemishes. Be warned: monsters may still lurk beneath powder and paint.
