9780007301287: Ugly Shy Girl

Roald Dahl and Quention Blake meets Tim Burton in sassy poet Laura Dockrill’s edgy and hilarious tale

You might have known somebody like Ugly Shy Girl once ...
You might have seen her bumping into lamp-posts and tripping over her bag.
She wears a denim skirt down to her ankles and a second-hand Naf Naf jacket.
Her hair hangs down in front of her face and her nails are bitten and sore.
She is always doing or saying completely the wrong thing.

This itwisted tale is about the struggle of growing up in a place where you don’t belong, surrounded by people you hate ...and how delicious getting your own back can be.
