9781849415422: Polly Price's Totally Secret Diary: Mum in Love

"I had been looking forward to going to France in the Easter holidays for weeks. Admittedly it meant going with Mum and her annoying, yuckily young, French boyfriend, Almond. But I knew we would be staying at Almond's parents' place: A CHATEAU! Everyone knows 'chat' means 'cat' in French -- so I couldn't wait... 2 whole weeks in a houseful of cats! I love animals!

"Tragically things NEVER work out as you expect. Instead of a houseful of cats it turned out to be a houseful of Almond's annoying, totally weird French family. Maybe if Piranha wasn't so evil, and Lucien (Almond's younger brother) wasn't so cool, things might have turned out differently -- but before I had time to squeak 'murder,' I was on the ghastly trail of a heartless criminal. Could I, Polly Price, uncover the truth? Well -- not if I was the chief suspect. And not if I starved to death trying to find my way through long, murky corridors to breakfast. I knew I was in a race against time. And I didn't even have a watch."

About the Author:

DEE SHULMAN has written and/or illustrated about fifty books for children, ranging from board books to teenage fiction. Her books have been translated into many languages, including Japanese, Dutch and Finnish, been highly recommended in the press and on radio and shortlisted for numerous awards.

Dee has a degree in English from York University and went on to study Illustration at Harrow School of Art. She began her illustration career in magazines, cartoon strips and pop-video storyboards, and only started writing for children when her own children were small. Despite a diet of gummy bears and sherbert fountains, her children have insisted on growing up -- so her characters have had to grow up with them, and now even they refuse to do what they're told!

From Booklist:

Polly is off on another zany adventure, this time to a chateau in France to visit her mum’s boyfriend’s family. Mum is busy snogging Almond and embarrassed to have a preteen daughter, so Polly is to call her aunt Arabella and stay out of the way. That gives Polly plenty of time with cute Lucien, who offers to teach her how to ride horses. But sneaky Piranella is up to no good, and when Uncle Tyran’s bird mysteriously dies, Polly must solve the case (which also involves a will and missing rubies). A fast read, this is flavored with humor and populated by fun characters. Most likely, however, it will be the look of the book—written and illustrated by Polly in scrapbook style—that will keep this quirky read moving off the shelves. Grades 4-7. --Melissa Moore
