9780007424856: SKINNY MELON AND ME

This is the first title in Jean Ure’s acclaimed series of humorous, delightful and poignant stories written in the form of diaries and letters which make them immediately accessible to children.

Cherry's mother has just re-married, much to Cherry's disgust. The worst thing about her step-father is his name: Roland Butter. Can you imagine?

Cherry's best friend, Skinny Melon, is a sounding board for all Cherry's angsts - Roland's allergies for one - who wants a wimpy step-father, all sniffly and red-eyed? All this and curried compost school dinners to contend with.

But when Roland starts sending Cherry coded messages, her curiosity is aroused. Will she ever learn to live with, and even like, Roland Butter?

Review:

"Jean Ure’s books are funny, funky, feisty – and fantastic reads!" – Jacqueline Wilson

Praise for Passion Flower:
“A funny and realistic read – we loved it.” – Mizz

Praise for Pumpkin Pie:
“The heroine I've been waiting for.” – Times

Praise for Shrinking Violet:
“Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure.” – The Observer

Praise for Becky Bananas:
“The writing transcends any trace of heaviness.” – The Guardian

And jere’s just a sample of what children are saying about Jean’s fantastic new character-led series, Frankie Foster:

"Amazing! Full of shocks and surprises on every page!"
Beth, age 9

"Fizzy Pop was so exciting, I couldn't put it down!"
Emily, age 11

"Frankie Foster steps out of the pages of this spell-binding book and comes to life."
Imogen, age 12

From the Back Cover:

'Cherry's teacher says that keeping a diary is a good way to unclog your head of all the bits and pieces that worry you or make you angry…'

Cherry's Mum has just remarried.
'One of the worst things about him is his name …Roland Butter.
Can you imagine?'

She likes to complain about Roland to her best friend, Skinny Melon.
'Allergic to dogs. He just would be, wouldn't he?
He's that sort of person.
All wimpy and sniffly and red-eyed.'

AND she has school dinners to contend with.
'Curried compost heap for dinner today.
I found what looked like the remains of a beetle in mine.'

'Will Cherry learn to live with – or even like slimey Roland? Will she ever decipher his coded messages? Will Mum reveal her secret? Or will the ups and downs of family life prove too much for all of them?'
