Product Description

Daisy Dirt is the richest girl in the world, yet also the poorest! She has the biggest room in the world – and also the smallest! How can this be? Join Daisy as she zooms between two homes: one with her dad, who is a dustman on the dole, and one with her mum, who has married a Duke with a Daimler. When the Duke loses his fortune and Daisy’s dad wins the lottery, everything turns back to front and inside out! A classic comic story of family life for beginner readers, written by much-loved author Allan Ahlberg.

Allan has been delighting children of all ages for more than thirty years. Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems.

Many of his books were collaborations with his wife, Janet, an illustrator, and they quickly became one of Britain’s leading author/illustrator teams.

Influenced by comics and cartoons, their perfect partnership went on to produce masterpieces including Peepo!, Each Peach Pear Plum and The Baby’s Catalogue.

Janet sadly died in 1994, but Allan has gone on to work with other illustrators and is still producing lots of new books.
