Description

When my parents split up they didn't know what to do with me ...My family always lived at Mulberry Cottage. Mum, Dad, me - and Radish, my Sylvanian rabbit. But now Mum lives with Bill the Baboon and his three kids. Dad lives with Carrie and her twins. And where do I live? I live out of a suitcase. One week with Mum's new family, one week with Dad's. It's as easy as A B C. That's what everyone says. But all I want is to go home - back to Mulberry Cottage...

Reviews

"Gripping, funny and sensitively written" Independent on Sunday "A modern story, realistic with lots of witty, offbeat humour" Daily Telegraph "A witty and moving tale of divorce" The Times "A deeply moving account of a child's agony and bewilderment as she suffers from her parents' divorce. Feelings tumble out in a cascade of experiences, at once painful and funny. Language is racy and modern, superbly capturing the experience of many children today" Junior Education "There's a bittersweet symmetry in [Andy's] defiant, touchingly manipulative and funny account of how she comes to terms with it all. Charming stylised illustrations by Nick Sharratt" Guardian
