No one should ever be a dreadful DiDi. But exactly what is a dreadful DiDi? Can a dreadful DiDi change her ways so that she is longer dreadful? If you are a dreadful DiDi or if you kw a dreadful DiDi (which most of us do) then this is the book for you! Enjoy the kid friendly illustrations and funny poetry of Penelope Dyan and then think about yourself and if you have ever tested your mother or father just to see how far you could go. Penelope Dyan is an award winning author and poet, a former teacher and an attorney. She loves kids and writes and illustrates her books with kids in mind. Usually, if something bothers her, she just writes a book about it. It's her way of helping others cope with the same things that might also bother them. Dyan is certain your mother and father tell you to be polite and nice to everyone, and she is also sure they tell you to take care of yourself. But sometimes kids just don't follow the rules, and dreadful DiDi is a perfect example of that! So please smell sweet and be sweet. And to find out exactly what this means, all you have to do is read this book!
