Move over Horrid Henry . . . Maisie Mae's in town!

Maisie Mae and her best friend Bethany-next-door like pink, unicorns and heart-shaped cushions. Maisie Mae's five stinky brothers like worms, football and CHAOS!

When Maisie Mae is asked to be a bridesmaid it's a dream come true! Because weddings mean flowers and cake and, most importantly, BEAUTIFUL dresses.

Maisie is probably the UNLUCKIEST bridesmaid in the history of forever . . . Can best friend Bethany-next-door help to save the day?

Biographical Notes

Poppy Harper knows a thing or two about brothers. About sisters too for that matter! Her big, boisterous family provided endless inspiration for Maisie Mae. Though she's glad to say that none of her siblings ever put worms in her lunchbox . . .
