Josie Smith

Josie Smith, at five and three quarters, is unapologetically herself, and brimming with ideas and schemes – even if these never seem to go quite to plan. There are three short stories to enjoy here, cataloguing Josie’s adventures as she gets a surprise for her mum’s birthday, runs away from home and steals a ginger cat … If your kids fall in love with Josie and her exploits, there’s a whole series to enjoy as she grows older, life grows more complicated and the stories grow steadily longer – meaning your little ones will be able to develop, in all senses, alongside her.
