Puffin, 2012. ISBN 978-0-14-133744-9.
Recommended for primary aged students. This is the fourth book about Daizy Star, a primary school aged girl who is searching for a way to shine. As the title suggests Daisy is off to Paris on a school trip with her friends. Daizy is still trying to discover her special skills and abilities and desperately wants to earn a star in her class before the end of the school year. Along the way she has problems with her Dad who dresses as a giant squirrel, annoying boys and French art.
Daizy Star, Ooh la la! is an easy and fun read and deals with many of the issues young girls face, such as friendship, school and family. These books are very popular with middle, upper primary aged girls at my school.
Cathy Cassidy has written 20 books for girls but Daizy Star is aimed at the pre-teen girl.
