This was a fun, heart warming read.
Very funny and charming with a lovable narrator. Loved the idea of having a 7 year old narrate this story
by Sara Chaouki
This charming and funny novel is narrated by a 7 year old, which I loved! I found this unique perspective to be interesting, as children see things differently than adults, no matter how mature they are. This was a great read!

This is hilarious, the best laugh out loud novel ever written . Can not wait for the next one. Simply brilliant.

Absolutely hilarious, constant belly laughing to yourself. Would recommend to anyone casual or avid readers alike!
One of, if not the funniest book I've ever read. It's so well observed. As a parent I can totally relate to the embarrassing, albeit innocent things children say/do and if anything this book highlights just how easy it is for a child to misinterpret and misconstrue what adults say. I find Maddison totally endearing. I read the book cover to cover and cried laughing. This author has a true gift and I cannot wait for the next instalment. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, it's just BRILLIANT!

I enjoyed this book, the story itself is entertaining, funny and Maddison's attempts to be good so she can obtain her longed for Christmas gift kept me going until the end of the book. In one respect however, it is quite a challenging read as it is written from the perspective of a small child who spells phonically, mispronounces many words and also has a lisp. This meant I had to re-read sentences or paragraphs to check my understanding and I can appreciate that some readers might find this a little off-putting. If you can cope with that, then the story of Maddison and her family is endearing, humorous and satisfying. Thank you to NetGalley & the publishers for allowing me to read and advance copy of the book.

This was a fun, light hearted read. It follows a year in the life of the larger-than-life Maddison, a 7 year old with a big knack for getting into scrapes. She is also the narrator so we see everything from her perspective, including her misinterpretations of words and situations. I found it genuinely amusing and really enjoyed it. The rest of the family were quite entertaining too, especially her parents and their attempts to deal with the chaos Maddison brings.

A beautiful book. Filled with belly hugging humour and the sort of outrageous situations only an irrepressible seven year old could find (or a witty and persistent author). I felt for the family having to put up with Maddison and equally for Maddison having to put up with her family, but in the mixture of the two some very funny and memorable moments have been created - and the family bond is never lost. Strained, fractured, pulled to the extremes, but never lost. I highly recommend this book. 5 stars.

Maddie lives with her mum, dad and stoner big brother Robbie. The best way to describe her is a seven-year-old force of nature. Trouble seems magnetically drawn to her, usually with disastrous but always funny results.
If I could give this more than five stars I definitely would. Whilst Maddie doesn't bear any resemblance to any seven year old I know (and I have one of those at home) she is an hilarious creation. I have never laughed out loud at a book as much as this one. The mix ups, misunderstandings and disasters never stop coming. I'm really hoping for a sequel!
