Description

Meet Billie Upton Green and her VERY accidental diary – and don’t you DARE call her B.U.G!

Billie has taken the new girl at school under her wing. She’ll teach her the important stuff – Biscuit Laws, Mrs Patterson and of course where to sneakily eat a Jaffa Cake. She might even get invited to the EVENT OF THE YEAR (Billie’s mums’ are getting married).

But then suspicion sets in. The new girl seems VERY close to Billie’s best friend Layla.

And she knows a LOT about the big school heist – the theft of Mrs Robinson’s purse. But, Billie is on to her. Well, as long as Patrick doesn’t catch her eating biscuits first.

Join Billie in this laugh-out-loud adventure!

Publisher Review

For readers of seven-plus, Jen Carney's The Accidental Diary of BUG (Puffin) introduces sparky eponymous heroine Billie Upton Green . . . This cheery, highly illustrated diary story, more rooted in contemporary reality than Liz Pichon's Tom Gates books, is the first in a series that's sure to find devoted fans. * The Guardian * A sparky, funny new series perfect for fans of Diary of A Wimpy Kid. * Daily Mail * I really enjoyed reading the adventures of Billie Upton Green (not Bug!!)! Billie is a delightful and relatable character, and her escapades are both funny and heart-warming. I particularly enjoyed the inclusivity in the text, and it's a real joy to see such positive LGBTQ+ representation in children's books. Jen has written a real treat for younger readers, and the artwork is fabulous, too! * L. D. Lapinski, The Strangeworlds Travel Agency * Readers will love Billie's adventures, and her funny, doodle-filled way of sharing them, as much as they love the Dork Diaries or Wimpy Kid stories, and it's great too to see such a warm celebration of diverse family life. * Andrea, LoveReading4Kids * Ideal for fans of Tom Gates, or Pamela Butchart's books . . . a wonderful new series. * The Week Junior, Book of the Week *
