We've been reading Squishy Taylors first book and we are in love and cannot wait to read the next ones. Written by Ailsa Wild and illustrated by Ben Wood, Squishy's first book is released this month (February 2016) and it is a great introduction into Squishy and her world.

Squishy Taylor

Squishy Taylor and the Bonus Sisters

Sita Taylor aka Squishy lives with her Dad, Alice (her step-mum),her twin 'bonus' step sisters and her half baby brother. Squishy's mum works for the UN and is based in Geneva.  As with all 11 year olds there is lots of ups and downs with family and life but this fun, strong girl always makes the right decision in the end.  In this first book she trusts and is betrayed by her 'bonus' sisters and the girls find a problem to be solved when Squishy finds Not-John.

We really enjoyed this book it was easy to read, the kids had a couple of laughs, they could relate to situations and the family senarios.  I enjoyed reading it too, Squishy is a lovely character and I'd be happy for them to read more about her on their own.


Also released this month (February 2016)  is:

Squishy Taylor and a Question of Trust

Is the nasty neighbour a diamond thief?  He must be Squishy is so sure he is and so are the 'bonus' sisters the other members of the HRC.
