Synopsis

From the winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2018. Meet Saffy, Indigo, Rose and Caddy Casson. This colourful and hilarious series will make you wish you were part of the family!

Best friends, boyfriends, problem parents, pink hair. Brothers, sisters, fireworks and unexpected babies. Welcome to Caddy's World.

Travel back to when Caddy was a young girl and Rose had not been born, in this moving and comical prequel to the award-winning Saffy's Angel.

'Full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour' Guardian

Saffy's Angel won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and book 3, Permanent Rose, was shortlisted for the same award, celebrating McKay's talent for conveying the anarchic bedlam of family life.

In the media
Hilary McKay, the best writer of child dialogue around at the moment... Glorious novel from a true master of her craft.

Independent

A triumph of humour, emotion and realism.

Daily Mail

Caddy's world is saturated with colour, style and romance, with even the most mundane detail given a witty lick of polish.

Daily Telegraph

Caddy's World excels in portraying not only the thoughts and feelings of four 12-year-old girls, but also those of the Casson parents.
