I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of Cookie and the most annoying girl in the world by Konnie Huq from Love Reading 4 Kids and I have loved it. I am now reading it for the third time!
It is a great book for children who don’t like reading huge amounts as it has lots of different styles to catch your attention. Most of it is written as a chapter book, but it is from Cookie’s perspective and really easy to follow, almost like a diary, then it is broken up with emails and lots and lots of drawings and sketches.
I really enjoyed the way Cookie thinks as it is very easy to relate to.
The book follows her story and the lives of her friends Jake and Kenziah as well as the most annoying girl in the world- Suzie Ashby and some other children from their class. Cookie is given some tickets to the Aliana Tiny concert and suddenly finds Suzie Ashby wants to be her best friend, which comes with more problems than Cookie could have imagined.
Cookie suffers with major FOMO and it is this fear of missing out that means she finds herself signed up to The F Factor. It turns out the F Factor isn’t quite what she imagined.
I love the storyline of the book as it is really entertaining. I like the way Cookie ends up learning a bit about herself and her friends but still stays like a normal kid. While there is a bit of a lesson in the book it isn’t too much!
I hadn’t heard of the Cookie books before, but I enjoyed this one so much I asked for the first Cookie book for my birthday.
Konnie Huq’s book is perfect for kids age 8 upwards and is ideal for both bookworms and more reluctant readers.
