              A funny, lively, sympathetic illustrated chapter book about a street-smart country girl in her first year of school, from internationally award-winning Frida Nilsson.Hattie is a street-smart country girl in her first year of school. She lives just outside of nowhere, right next t...o no one at all. Luckily she's starting school and that brings new adventures. Hattie gets her first swimming badge, falls madly in love with a hermit crab and meets a best friend. Sometimes things go wrong-like when the hairdresser cuts her hair into stumps just in time for school photos. Or when she happens to accidentally say in class that her new neighbour has three white horses she can ride on.Hattie is a funny, lively and sympathetic chapter book, perfect for reading aloud and for newly independent readers-from Frida Nilsson, whose award-winning Ice Sea Pirates was an international bestseller.

As much as they ask for, say the experts. And exactly what do children want to know?

The answers are both direct and warm-hearted, giving children the information they really want to know in a form they can relate to. What is so important about the body? Why do bodies grow hair? Why do people kiss? Is it embarrassing to have sex? Why do breasts hang down? What does it feel like to be in love? Can a grandmother have children? What is a hormone? Can a child fart when it's inside a mother's body? What is sexy?
