Daisy finds trouble with everything and this book is no exception. She is in real trouble with her mother and you don't find out why until the end of the book. The story covers a special day out, best friends, the zoo, animals, a great liking of penguins, grown-ups, being grounded, and a lot of what ifs. I read this to my 5 year old but my 7 and 10 year olds couldn't resist listening too. Everyone enjoyed Daisy's humour and I think all three related to "the trouble with" at one point or other during the story. Recommended as a book to read to your younger children and one to read for children between 7 and 9. I also recommend Daisy and the Trouble with Life as a good starting point. Have fun.

Part of a threesome bought to complete granddaughter's collection. She loves them, so I should probably give it 5 stars (but as a granny, I'm allowed to be awkward). I prefer 'Room-on-a-broom' type lyricism, but for a learning-to-read-yourself book, these are really very good indeed, especially as they split up easily into one-night-at-a-time chunks.

My 7 year old daughter loves it! Especially the super big surprise! She read this book while walking around the London Underground system whilst on holiday, her laughter was heard all through the carriage...
After she read it, she re-read it 3 more times..Daisy is her favourite character (review by mum and daughter)

This is the best Daisy book so far according to my 7 year old! I read it to her over 2 days even though it was supposed to be a goodnight story, we just couldn't wait that long! Very funny as usual and Daisy surpasses herself and her antics in this one, a definite recommendation for young girls and boys!

My daughter loved this book so I would recommend it for 7/8 year olds, but when she was reading it to me I got rather bored of the phrase "the trouble with". It's funny, thoughtful, and the next stage in Daisy's life now that she's growing up!!
