I knew I’d love Dear Ugly Sisters as much as I love Laura herself – she’s a BIG bundle of energy, thoughtfulness and fun, and so of course is her book.
Here are just two of the spreads to show her range, first, the title poem:
And a more wistful one:
As a fabulous extra, there is a code to a free accompanying audio book, which is is great bonus!
I predict this book will give laughter, thoughts, questions, comfort – and sow the seeds of a love for poetry in any young person who reads it or has it read to them. A must for every library, home and school.
BIG recommendation, 5 SPARKLY, FIZZING stars for young people aged 7-11.
Dear Ugly Sisters is published by Otter-Barry Books and is beautifully illustrated by Tania Rex.
