The Goody

Lauren Child

Published: 3rd September 2020 A touchingly funny tale of being GOOD, being BAD, and most importantly, being YOU from Lauren Child, multi-award-winning, bestselling creator of Charlie and Lola. Chirton Krauss is a good child - the very goodest. He does everything he is told, when he is told. He even does good things without being told. He eats his broccoli, he goes to bed on time and he never, ever sticks his finger up his nose. Meanwhile, Chirton's sister, Myrtle, is NOT a good child. She stays up late, she never cleans out the rabbit's hutch and she drops her choco puffs all over the carpet! But what will happen when Chirton Krauss decides that being THE GOODY isn't so good after all? A charmingly funny story about the importance of kindness, and allowing children the freedom to be themselves. From Lauren Child, multi-award-winning creator of Charlie and Lola and Waterstone's Children's Laureate 2017-2019. HARDBACK Publisher: Hachette ISBN: 9781408347584

A really funny tale about being good and not being good, and what exactly being good really means. You really feel for Chirton just because he is the 'Goody' - why does he always have to finish his broccoli!? The accompanying illustrations are beautiful and have a very 70s vibe. One to read again and again - Enjoy!
