My six year old daughter is a great fan of Daisy - she began with the picture books and has since moved on to the chapter books. Daisy's mum has decided they need to go on holiday and so they are to go to Spain. Of course, Daisy is very excited and a good part of the book is about the holiday preparations, anticipation and travelling there. As it is now the summer holidays, this would be a great book if you are, perhaps, flying with your child for the first time - or if they are nervous flyers. The story has a lot of detail about what to expect, what happens at the airport and how thrilled Daisy is as she boards the plane. Once Daisy and her mum are in Spain, Daisy makes friends with other children on the resort and begins to explore. When she finds a stray cat, and her kittens, she embarks on a campaign to care for them with hilarious consequences.
This book is told in Daisy's own individual style and from her point of view. She is a very modern little girl and the situations in the books will be understood by her readers, who have undoubtedly encountered many of the same experiences. There are quite a lot of books in this series now, but, as far as my little girl is concerned, the author cannot write them quickly enough. Excellent and highly recommended.
