"Dizzy" by Cathy Cassidy is an irresistible story for girls aged 9+. 'I never sleep, the night before my birthday ...it's the only day of the year I hear from her...' Dizzy's mum left when she was small. But every year, on her birthday, something arrives in the post - a present or a card with her mum's loopy writing on it. Dizzy has kept everything. This year is different. Nothing comes in the post, but something amazing is about to arrive on Dizzy's doorstep. Something that will whisk her away - and put Dizzy's world in a spin. Will her secret birthday wish come true? "Touching, tender and unforgettable". ("Guardian"). "Cassidy's characters have real heart". ("Sunday Telegraph"). "Cathy Cassidy ...is way better than Jacqueline Wilson". (Courtney, aged 10). It includes delicious recipes, character quizzes and more! Cathy Cassidy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight or nine and has been writing fabulous stories ever since. Cathy is the bestselling author of "Dizzy", "Driftwood", "Indigo Blue", "Scarlett", "Sundae Girl", "Lucky Star", "Gingersnaps" and "Angel Cake". "The Chocolate Box Girls" is a sumptuous series starring sassy sisters, super-cool boys and one of Cathy's biggest loves - chocolate. Cathy lives in Scotland with her family and of all the jobs she's had, writing has to be the best - it's the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!
