Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool
‘Appearance is everything’ says Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool, ‘the most beautiful girl in the whole of the school!’ This cautionary tale is yet another masterpiece from the pen of Jeanne Willis and is particularly relevant to today’s image conscious society. Finding picture books that are suitable for older children can be quite difficult, another reason to love this book! Our heroine (!) meets a somewhat sticky end something that an older audience will no doubt approve of. Tony Ross’s humorous illustrations compliment the text well, and are sure to lead to one or two giggles!! The rhyming nature of the words makes it particularly suited to being read out aloud. However if tongue twisters are not your forte make sure you practise first. It will be worth it believe me!
