Ella Diaries - Christmas Chaos by Meredith Costain
Published by Scholastic Australia
The latest book in the Ella Dairies series, Mums and big sisters will love this fun filled book as well. Ella confides everything in her secret private diary. It’s the Christmas holidays and she is on holidays at Moonlight Gardens.
She is looking forward to having fun with Zoe her BFF, at the best ever beach, Moonlight Bay. The caravan is squishy but that’s okay. However not everything is as wonderful as it seems. Ella’s SBFF’s and Perfect Peach Parker have joined forces and it rains. The diary entries follow the highs and lows and the horrendously horrible happenings that could only happen to Ella. It all ends well. The rain finally stops. With a little help Ella solves the mystery and saves the day. She is rewarded with a fantabulously fabulous outing and finishes it off with a special choc peanut fudge ice cream cone. Well written and engaging, it has the perfect voice for its age range and the naive pencil sketches add to the appeal. This is one for the Christmas stocking.
