A funny and charming new story from bestseller Hilary McKay for Egmont's red banana series.
Tilly never has time to tidy her messy bedroom because she is always too busy helping other people. So when she leaves home to visit her far-flung relatives, how will her family cope without her?
Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers. They are carefully designed illustrated books for both entertainment and education, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Red bananas introduce similes and wordplay to encourage an understanding of more literary concepts. The Terrible Time Without Tilly is illustrated beautifully by Kimberley Scott.
This is Book 54 in the Banana Books Series. See all Banana Books books here.
