Absolutely gorgeous book Loved it so much, eventhan the first in the series Reminds me of Hilary McKay s Casson family books. TheI read of the Pea books, theI keep being reminded of how they are a very quiet classic in the world of British children s literature today They have an almost palpable heritage of the Casson family, Noel Streatfeild, Enid Blyton and read like snow on a school day, crumpets by the fire, and that first day of the school holidays, and they are perfect Genuinely so Beamingly so There s a richness to these books that astounds me and were I to recommend one book for the relevant age TheI read of the Pea books, theI keep being reminded of how they are a very quiet classic in the world of British children s literature today They have an almost palpable heritage of the Casson family, Noel Streatfeild, Enid Blyton and read like snow on a school day, crumpets by the fire, and that first day of the school holidays, and they are perfect Genuinely so Beamingly so There s a richness to these books that astounds me and were I to recommend one book for the relevant age group, it would be these Any of them I love the care of them, I love the quiet sagacity of them, and I love the story of them I love them So much This is the second book in the series All of them stand ineffably well by themselves so don t worry about the series of the series I appreciate that may make no sense I hope it does One of my big pet hates are series titles which forget that they are sold as stand alone titles you know the sort where you get launched in and have no clue why Aethelfred is stealing the Diamond of Importantness and ignorning the fact that Flibbertigibbet just died Suffice to say, Day doesn t do that I love the construction of this book, the tightness of it and the way that within three pages, we have characters established, backstory and a motivation for the story all just there And not obviously either Just there, and part of the story that is Pea s Book of Big Dreams.And what a lovely little book this is Pea is having a bit of a crisis she can t figure out what she wants to be when she grows up The new English teacher at school has quite spectacularly dented her confidence so it s time for a change What is Pea going to be when she grows up There s not manyways for me to reiterate how wonderful this book and this series is but I m going to try The richness of Day s world and the soft, genuine warmth of it is something quite perfect These books exist are a constant delight and they should be savoured Intensely Like the finest of things Because they are Eleven year old Pea and her wonderfully wacky family are back for their second adventure in this fabulously funny series After securing herself a best friend and settling into London life, Pea is now contemplating her future and what exactly she should be when she grows up Should she be a writer like Mum An artist like their crazy new au pair Klaudia A footballer A pet therapist Join Pea as she attempts to find out the answers with hilarious results It was a very light hearted book with comedic action which makes Susie an author who writes books which are an easy read I highly recommend all the series about Pea and her family My preteen daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about this quirky but realistic family Susie Day writes with humour but also cleverly covers deep and difficult life and family issues in a heartwarming, non traumatic way. This is my favourite book and I could read it over and over again To me it is like Harry Potter, so thrilling and exciting So many parts made me laugh and I could never put the book down I can t wait to read all of her other adventures in her other books Please read this wonderfully, spectacular book I thought the book was much too long I loved the ending I will recommend it to some of my younger students My favourite sentence from the book is It s been so long since I ve written a story I ve got nearly too many ideas. Loved this divine little book perfect for younger readers that like family stories along the lines of Jacqueline Wilson the worst thing about my sister etc type stories This reminded me very much of a younger Casson Family story. Really lovely series I really enjoyed this instalment looking at future plans of the young characters and the ideas about being open the possibilities before them being endless As always I love the diverse characters and the way they are presented in the story Just fab Absolutely lovely family focused middle grade It s full of humour and coziness but it never slips into feeling unrealistically positive or unrealistically modern This is just the Llewellyn family, warts and all, trying to figure out what to do with the future.
