Daisy and the Trouble with Nature

Daisy and her class are so excited when their new school nature garden is unveiled.

But the trouble with their nature garden is, there’s not very much nature in it.

There are NO:

Birds
Butterflies
Grizzly Bears
Wolverines

If there’s one thing Daisy HATES it’s waiting. Especially waiting for nature to appear. Luckily, she’s going camping with Gabby, and will find LOTS of nature to bring back.

Only, the trouble with nature is, it’s really hard to control…

Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots

Daisy’s uncle is taking her on a FISHING TRIP! And she is so excited.

There is so much to learn about fishing, it isn’t just about rods and bait and waiting. Daisy also needs to know about:

How water witches turn fishermen into dog poos
Why supermarkets don’t stock picknicky things like lemonade and chicken wings on the same shelf
And why maggots are one of the best things about fishing!

But the trouble with maggots is they don’t make very good catapult ammunition…

Daisy and the Trouble with Life

Daisy isn’t have a very good time of it lately.

She’s been GROUNDED. And the trouble with being grounded is, she can’t:
Hop
Skip
Fly
Parachute

Mum says she’s lucky that she’s been allowed out of her bedroom AT ALL.

But just what has she done that’s so bad? And will she ever be allowed to have fun ever again?

Daisy and the Trouble with Chocolate

Daisy is usually happy with her strawberry Dip Dab lollies or Crunchy Cream biscuits, but when Easter comes round, it’s all about chocolate.

And the trouble with chocolate is, it’s TOO DELICIOUS. So when Daisy’s mum tells her they’re going to Chocolate Land as a special treat, she is REALLY excited!

PLUS she has been chosen to look after the class hamsters, Pickle and Pops! This could be the best Easter ever.

But the trouble with hamsters and chocolate is, the two shouldn’t mix…

 

Daisy and the Trouble with Zoos

Daisy is SO excited because it’s her BIRTHDAY and she’s getting a special treat!

Mum is taking Daisy and her best friends Gabby and Dylan to the zoo.

The trouble with zoos is, the animals are TOO CUTE. Especially the penguins…

So when Daisy gets to go into the ACTUAL penguin cage with the ACTUAL zookeeper and feed the ACTUAL penguins, it really isn’t her fault that she has to secretly adopt one.

But Daisy soon discovers that the trouble with penguins is, they don’t make the easiest pets.
