Ugly Shy Girl by Laura Dockrill
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


MATILDA meets WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE in this brilliantly original and deliciously dark tale of the Ugly Shy Girl.

Now the thing about Ugly Shy Girl is that most of the rumours are true.  She is hideously ugly, horrifically shy and only has one pair of shoes. Everybody on her road rides round her in circles on bicycles taunting her with tennis rackets, Because she wears an arm-length v-neck, down to the ankle denim skirt and a second-hand Naf Naf jacket. Her hair hangs down in front of her face, her nails are bitten and sore, and a ripple of pimples hang like stars down the pock-marked side of her jaw.

But what if one day she went into the woods and made some friends who understood. Would she be ugly any more?
