Review: Sorry about me by Laura Dockrill
Ten-year-old Darcy sees the extraordinary in the everyday and the wonder in the world around her. This third book sees Darcy encounter extra-large-amounts of drama - mice have invaded her house, which means the family must get a cat. Cue a mega-meltdown in a pet shop and then the arrival of Pork, an angry dumpling of a cat who terrifies Lamb-Beth. And while chaos rules at home, Will's long-lost dad has turned-up and taken him out of school. Who will Darcy be friends with now? Must she hang-out with school secretary Mavis EVERY DAY FOR ALL ETERNITY?
Just a brief few words from me today on this wonderful little book. Sorry about me is the third book in the Darcy Burdock series. It is just as fabulous as the previous two books full of heart and wonderfully funny. I adored every page and couldn't read it fast enough. I love Darcy's view on the world and you can see Laura's personality shine through on every page. I'm not a huge reader of books aimed at this age but I can't recommend this series highly enough.
