Polly is not happy. Her mother is pregnant and can't stop talking about 'the new baby'. Her little sister is exceptionally annoying. Her hamster has gone missing. AND she is no longer best friends with her best friend! So Polly decides that she is going to follow Shakespeare's role and run away from home. But first she is going to plan it all in her diary. A wonderful witty and very very lively book for any newly confident reader who wants the fun of reading someone else's diary! ' a real original Polly's brilliant diary reveals her thoughts on life The stream-of-consciousness style of writing is immensely readable and moves seamlessly across a wide range of subjects with a great deal of wit and truth. Sally Gardner's wonderful illustrations perfectly fit the text and add to the huge entertainment the book offers.' Wendy Cooling, Literacy and Learning 'Polly is a dissident child with a devastating line in put-downs and a thoroughtly convincing stream-of-consciousness style of writing.' Sunday Telegraph ' a gem of grumpiness and a good, fun read.' Sainsbury's magazine 'an absolute delight.' amazon.co.uk
