We are wearing out the naughty step

We are wearing out the naughty step

The naughty step is being used a lot this week. First, I lost the school hamster, then Josh fed the elephant the wrong way and we then made the dog into a panda… Mummy is not happy. But the day she makes Kevin a chocolate birthday cake is the day that ALL of us, including Mummy, end up on the Naughty Step!

An hilarious story that reflects family life at its most chaotic – and realistic! It will strike a chord with any parent.

Mick Inkpen is the libraries’ ninth most borrowed author and is the creator of the much-loved Kipper and Wibbly Pig.

‘The charmingly comical Inkpen, as always, hits the spot.’ Guardian
