HarperCollins, 2016. ISBN 9780008167097
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. If the title Nathalia Buttface and the totally embarrassing bridesmaid disaster doesn't make you laugh then the hilarious events in the first 50 pages will! Nathalia doesn't want to be a bridesmaid in her stupid cousin's, who she really doesn't know, wedding and is trying hard to be removed as a bridesmaid. The humungous fairy dress is only one terrible part of the whole thing but worse is yet to come - meeting the other bridesmaids, going to the day spa, someone losing their hairpiece and getting a promotion to 2nd bridesmaid!
Nathalia Buttface is as hilarious as it is descriptive. Highly recommended for girls aged 9+. Every word leaves a funny image in your mind as you read about Nathalia's antics. Meet the bridegroom and his big personality. Watch Dad, the unorganised, organise a wedding. Can Nathalia, as the 2nd bridesmaid, uninvite uncle Ernie without hurting his feelings? How will Darius, Nathalia's best friend, get her out of this crazy wedding? Will Nathalia make it to the big day?
