And with her school talent show, Dad's karaoke superstardom, Mum teaching at her school AND a potentially evil childminder, life is messier than ever! Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of TOM GATES, BADLY DRAWN BETH book 1 won the 2016 Lollies award for funniest book for 6-8 year olds.
You can't fail to laugh - at the story and at the wonderful illustrations which so superbly echo what is happening ( Parents In Touch ) Life is messier and more embarrassing than ever for Beth, as she takes to the stage for the school talent show.
