    Bought this book for my niece recently. She loved the characters and the pranks they played on the teachers. She is looking forward to the next instalment.

  • Brock Salier

    This book was read by my 8yo boy in two nights! Despite the lead character being a girl, he liked the pranks (esp stinkbomb) and liked the book. Enjoyed the odd picture, and liked the evil sister, and enjoyed the trip to Australia. Been re-gifted on the birthday party circuit and enjoyed by mates at school.

  • Cheryl Johnston

    This is the story of Daisy Dikdocks, who loves coming up with very humorous, practical pranks which are played out, with the help of a few school friends, on unsuspecting members of the public and her class teacher. It is very amusing, laugh out loud, easy to read a book that flows well. The writer's descriptive style makes it very easy to visualize both the pranks and the various characters, and I particularly loved Daisy and the Principal, Sister Thelma. The question throughout the book is ….Will Daisy be found out? Will the Principal, Sister Thelma, finally outwit the mischievous Daisy? Or, will Daisy and her mates continue to create havoc with their unusual and very funny pranks? This book promises to be very funny, with the telling of numerous delightful escapes by Daisy and her friends.

  • Suzanne De Bethune

    This children's book has got to be a success. It is full of delicious ways to be naughty while not exactly being bad. What fun!! I know several children who have read this book and all have rated it as excellent.
    It would be a great book for a series. Hope there's another one on the way.

  • Karen Lyra

    Naughty in Pink is cleverly naughty and fun. My daughters enjoyed the main character Daisy and her cheeky behavior and found it relatable to their school life. Lots of good laughs and looking forward to the next book and adventures. Really great read.

  • Liang Zhang

    Wow!!! This is a great book for kids. My daughter likes it very much. She is growing up towards a cute naughty girl. We are going to have a lot of fun in life. As Chinese, it is also an excellent book to learn English. Hope it can be translated into Chinese in the future. Looking forward to the next book for kids by the author.

  • Boze Jia

    This book has got to be a complete success. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and especially loved the pictures. The pranks played a big part and made me laugh out loud. Also, I think this would be a great book to write a sequel for.

  • Shengxun Sai

    I really like the personality of this little pink girl, and you will feel pretty happy to read her story and those innocent ideas are just sooooo funny. Teen and adults would think of their childhood when reading it.
