Little Hare Books, 2012. ISBN 978-1-921714-86-3.
(Age: 8-10) Charlie Burr is a well meaning boy but seems to constantly find himself in trouble. This is the third in the Charlie Burr series written by Sally Morgan with her family.
This time Charlie's Mum bears the worst of the accidents which start innocently enough with a fake cockroach meant to upset his annoying sisters. Things just get worse and Charlie definitely needs to get himself back into Mum's good books and to make sure she has a great birthday.
To add to his worries he must perform magic tricks at the school fete without any of his confiscated magical equipment.
Silly humour and comical situations will make this story appealing to readers aged 8 to 10 years.
Jane Moore
