Product description

Review

Fruit and Nutcase
“…this is an upbeat yet gritty story about the tenacity of love and the fact that life is never perfect.”
Scotland on Sunday

Becky Bananas
“…the writing transcends any trace of heaviness”
Guardian

From the Back Cover

This is the story of how Mandy learns to cope with her untidy life and finally emerges triumphant.

Mandy Small has trouble writing so Cat, her teacher, suggests that she tells her life story into a tape recorder. So begins Mandy’s funny and sometimes sad story of life with her loving but chaotic parents – Dad, the Elvis look-alike, and Mum, whose idea of a special meal is burnt toast!

Then there’s school, where the horrible Tracey Bigg picks on Mandy and her timid friend, Oliver, not to mention Old Misery Guts, the landlady and Nan, who thinks that Mandy’s parents aren’t fit to look after her. With so many things to worry about, Mandy begins to think that she’s in danger of turning into a real Fruit and Nutcase!

Mandy’s story, told in the form of diary into a tape recorder, is a funny and often moving account of a child’s everyday life, with all its difficulties. Hilariously illustrated by Mick Brownfield.

I'd recommend this book to readers of ten or eleven, but if you're a massive Jean Ure fan like me then you should get it anyway, however old you happen to be! It is a brilliant book, original and well-written. It's funny, but it has a serious side as well. Everyone should have a copy! Buy it now!

I read this easy in the school library where Mandy Small's teacher, Cat suggests she record her life on tape so she does and she talks about her social life, friends and family. Great book!
