Wise, rich and funny, this is a perfect and hilarious novel of growing up.
Simone is twelve. When her new teacher mistakes her for a boy called Simon, the trouble really begins - and it doesn’t stop!
All sorts of things start to go wrong, like lost dogs and ducks in the classroom and stolen handbags... Simone is constantly getting into trouble, even though she doesn’t mean to (most of the time).
Fruitloops and Dipsticks is a laugh-out-loud coming-of-age novel about a tough (but sensitive) girl (who’s pretending to be a boy) who comes to accept her family’s - and her own - eccentricities, and learns a lot about life and love along the way.
