My Funny Family Gets Funnier

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

Mattie's house is bursting at the seams. She lives with her mum, dad, three brothers, two sisters, Uncle Vez, a dog, rabbit, plus Grandma and Grandad - who are always popping in to visit.

So when Uncle Bruce and Aunty Sheila arrive from Australia, the house dissolves into complete chaos. No one minds though because their visitors from 'down under' have so many exciting and exotic tales of life on the other side of the world. The only person who doesn't seem happy with their new guests is Grandma - but why?

Mattie and her family are fabulous characters: warm, loveable and slightly unruly. Not only is this book a fun read, it is also filled with great nuggets of information about Australia - from its unusual version of the English language to the interesting animals that live there.

The book is perfect for newly independent readers.
