Colour First Reader: Daisy - Peas and Tickles

Two Daisy funnies. She hates peas. She picks her nose. She makes us cry with laughter. Reading alone has never been so easy-peasy. Daisy can be bad. But one thing she’s really good at is making you laugh with a brilliant book. So here are two Daisy stories to tickle your ribs, plus colour pictures by Nick Sharratt. There’s Mum’s epic battle to make Daisy eat her peas. (One of the funniest stories ever written about food.) And the war continues when Mum tells Daisy not to pick her nose. What does this naughty girl reply? Tee-hee.

  • A fabulous easy reader with two classic Daisy stories
  • Hilarious mischief starring this best-loved character
  • Full-colour artwork from star illustrator Nick Sharratt
  • Daisy’s book Eat Your Peas won the Red House Award
