Product description

A touching pair of stories starring a girl who is suddenly landed with twin siblings. Connie’s not happy! Her parents are having a baby. Well – not one baby, but two! Why do they need more children? They’ve got her! Soon the house is filled with dirty nappies and screaming babies, and Connie is expected to help. It’s not fair! But when Nurse Meade puts some blue beads in her hair, odd things start to happen – magical things! Soon Connie is fitting into her strange new family, showing the others how things look from her point of view. And, even better, when she visits the pool with twins Charles and Claire, water-hating Connie suddenly finds herself able to swim like a mermaid!

    I loved this book.It has two stories about overcoming your fears and family troubles by the bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson. The first story is Twin Trouble in which Connie is unhappy because her parents are having a baby, well not one but twins. She can’t understand why they want any more when they have her! But then someone gives her some beads which have magical effects.In the second story Connie and the Water babies, Connie and her twin siblings(a boy and a girl) go swimming except Connie hates the water. Then Nurse Meade gives Connie some more beads. And when they click together,and then Connie can swim like a mermaid. Perfect for girls aged 7+ to read <3
