Tricky's Bad Day by Alison Lester

Thu 8 August 2019

Everyone has bad days, but poor little Tricky is having a corker! He spills the milk, falls off his scooter and covers the kitchen in smoothie mix...!

His day is getting worse and worse, until Dad has an idea to take him outside. Even though the weather is wild and rainy, things start looking up.

This is one book most families can probably relate to, written and illustrated by Alison Lester, one of Australia's best-loved children's authors.

Tricky's Bad Day won the CBCA Book of the Year: Early Childhood 2019!
