Be Nice to Aunt Emma
By (author) Anne Fine; Illustrated by Gareth Conway
There are many reasons why Tansy dreads Aunt Emma coming to visit. She’s rude, she’s boring, and Tansy has to give up her room so Aunt Emma can sleep there. And every year Dad makes Tansy promise to be nice – even when Aunt Emma is awful. But this year, when Tansy is left alone with Aunt Emma, she decides she’s going to be the nicest she’s every been – so sickly sweet that it’ll drive Aunt Emma crazy! Let the games begin …Kindness is key in this funny new family drama from perennial bestseller and award-winning author Anne Fine.
