Two hours ago, when I walked into this school for the first time, the sun was shining, the birds were singing and, apart from a knot in my guts the size of Tasmania, life was great. Now here I am, locked in the stationery cupboard. Rowena wants to be friends but the other kids don't. Is it because she's just stuffed a frog into Darryn Peck's mouth? Or is it because of her Dad?

Rowena Batts is 11 and she lives with her dad in an orchard. Yet she's no country bumpkin. She's smart and quite good-looking. In her new school she just wants to make a friend. But what would you do if you had a dad who's a country and western fanatic who keeps bursting into song?Review:
The wonderful Morris Gleitzman does it again! There's Two Weeks with the Queen, Misery Guts, Worry Warts and Puppy Fat. Faced with some of life's most challenging problems (life-threatening illness, quarrelling and divorcing parents), Gleitzman's child heroes and heroines always manage to use their wit and humour, their intelligence and their love to find a way. It's hard to say which of the stories is the most hilarious and the most moving. They are all fantastically entertaining.
With Blabber Mouth (and Sticky Beak, its sequel) we get to know the wonderfully resourceful Rowena Batts and her totally outrageous, singing, apple-farming, satin-shirted Dad. Not being able to talk has its problems for Ro'--mostly because of other people's reactions to her--but just now her hardest problem is how to stop her irrepressible Dad from misbehaving. Find out how Ro' gets her feelings across, loud and clear, in this brilliantly funny, heart-warming story. (Ages 9 and over) --Tamsin Palmer
